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.
These two plaques are a depiction of a friend’s comments about his stressful work situation. I painted the Elephant one a few years prior to the trapeze one. They are 8 1/2″ X 6 1/2″ each.
This portrait of three well loved dogs was a a delight to paint. I used three individual photos of these Golden Retrievers and combined them in a cohesive image in fluid acrylics on a 20″ X 16″ canvas. Would you like a pet portrait of your own? Please contact me through this site.
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.
