Pansy Platter Pair

Pansies are fun to paint; I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again!! For this custom project the client wanted Pansies painted on her two large metal platters which were bordered with a wooden rim (15″ diameter).  I covered over their original motif with a grayish blue background color.  And then I just had fun!  Of course in addition to painting a variety of floral patterns and color variations, I put in buds and seed pods and wilted blooms along with a bee in each one.

Fuchsia Pink Rose with Butterfly

This lush fuchsia colored Rose is a just barely opened blossom painted in sharp focus against a diffused green background.   The inspiration for this painting is a photo I took this past spring in the Rose Garden in Elizabeth Park, Hartford, CT.    The purple butterfly is an ‘enhanced’ Common Blue.  The small plaque is only 9″ X 7″ but comes on strong!  It is available for sale at $80 including shipping.  Please contact me through this site if you are interested in purchasing it.
