This little kitty, named Darwin, needed a sign to hang on the door of his own special place which is under the stairs in a room like Harry Potter’s . He even has his favorite toy mouse by his side. Isn’t he sweet? This painting of him is 12′ tall and 9″ wide.
This is a second version of a plaque I did two years ago which I recently painted again upon request from a client. I never do two identical paintings, but I do revisit some of them on occasion especially if someone asks me to. This is the same pagoda I painted in the background of the first version but the faded browning blossoms could be just be blooms ‘from a different year’. I love how Hydrangeas can be beautiful all year long. I am including here a photo of an early stage of the paint process before the flowers were painted. This plaque is 12″ wide and 9″ tall.
This is a portrait of my all time favorite Kitty, named Captain. He stuffed himself into this small box about fifteen years ago and I ran quick for a camera! I chose to paint him a little larger than life a few weeks ago because I still miss this special, affectionate Maine Coon. The portrait is done in liquid acrylic on a 16″ X 20″ canvas. Do you have a favorite pet I could create a wonderful portrait of? Please contact me through this site if you are interested.
This plaque is painted with tea pots, a tea cup and saucer, a mug, and a cocoa pot all sitting on a wooden surface with doilies. The details are meticulously painted in my hyper-realistic style and are placed against an eggplant colored background. All the items depicted are from my own collection. The tall antique pot belonged to my late mother-in-law. The modern mug in the center shows a famous historical Japanese event. It had been years since I painted china and it was so much fun to revisit this motif. The wooden plaque is 13″ X 9″ and is bordered with golden paint. It is currently hanging in the entryway of a coastal bed and breakfast in Japan. Are you intrigued by this type of motif? Please contact me through this site and I will paint something similar to it just for you.
