Hydrangea Inspiration

In the midst of the Corvid-10 social distancing I had trouble getting my ‘engines’ started on a new painting. Then I came across a photo I had taken last summer and my inspiration came roaring back. I painted this pale blue Hydrangea  just as it was about to burst open to full bloom. I love the delicateness  I was able to achieve with the life size petals.   I painted the visiting bee with a softer focus to capture his motion in flight.  The small plaque is only 9″ X 7″  and is edged in shades of antique gold.  It is available for sale at $95.   Please contact me through this site if you are interested in purchasing it.

Hibiscus at Mt Fuji Plaque

This painting of Japanese Hibiscus was inspired by photos I took at the base of Mt Fuji. More delicate than the familiar American Hibiscus, it took a lot of research and intuition for me to identify it once I was back home after my trip. A Dragonfly is my signature insect for this piece. The small oval plaque is only 8 1/2″ X 6 3/4″ with a black frame reminiscent of traditional Japanese lacquer. It is ready for hanging with a hook on the back. It is for sale at $80 including shipping and handling in the United States. If you are interested in purchasing this plaque or custom ordering a similar piece with a different motif, please contact me through this site.
