This Hogwart’s treasure chest was painted to hold handmade crocheted Harry Potter figurines. It was a lovely combined effort between myself and another artist! I painted faux finishes all around with “leather” straps and brass rivets, edgings and protective corners. I tried to make the inside look like old trunks used to! It is about 12 “X 7″X4 “.
“Sunflower Burst is a 10” wide wood plaque with a live edge. I love flowers that are less than perfect with droopy petals and various stages of growth. My painted blossoms do not look like they come from a flower catalogue! Of course there is a bee here too! This plaque recently sold at an exhibit that was a fundraiser for Ukraine.
This little metal pot has a frog on each side. From one side you see his back and on the other you see his belly. It can hold a 4.5″ potted plant.
I painted this vintage University-style chair in the school colors of Roger Williams University. The commissioned piece was a tribute to a well loved supervisor who was retiring. I included all sorts of insider jokes and messages, even under the seat. The center Time Out sign was painted in two versions. Which do you like better?
