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.
I painted this Magnolia based on a photo I took in Seattle. The blossom is just a little past perfection which makes it vulnerable and real. The butterfly in flight comes from a photograph I took at the Magic Wings, a butterfly conservatory in Massachusetts. The wooden plaque is 8 1/2″ X 6 3/4″ and is for sale at $80 including shipping .
My first Tiger Lily Plaque was so well received, I happily revisited the concept. Here I painted two bright orange Tiger Lilies in sharp focus against a clear blue sky! A honey bee is flying nearby. The painting is based on photos I took on the Bridge of Flowers in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts over ten years ago. This oval plaque is edged in metallic green and is approximately 11″ X 8″. It delivers a great punch! This one has been sold but I can paint you a similar one for $75. If you are interested in purchasing something like this please contact me through this site.
Springtime brings beautiful Irises in a wide range of colors and styles. This small plaque (9″ X 7″) depicts a fairly low to the ground purple and white variety that I fell in love with at Elizabeth Park in Hartford last year. This time the visiting insect is a honey bee. I would love to paint something like this for you if you want as this one is already in the hands of a happy owner.
