My Rhododendron painting is a small canvas, only 6″ X 6″. It is my New England themed entry in a large array of 250 paintings called the New England Mosaic. This fund raiser display is currently (in the summer of 2023) making the rounds of several venues. I participated in this effort as a member of The Agawam Community Artists and Artisans. I am honored that my painting quickly sold.
I painted a necklace of quartz stone beads on this vintage pedestal table. I also painted a small handmade ‘Man in the Moon’ brass pendant based on a piece by artist David Oleski. The marble surfaces are faux painted in fluid acrylics and are done on all sides to continue the illusion. The three table legs are painted black with brass toned metallic paint. My signature bug is a dragonfly underneath the top. It stands 25″ tall and is 17.5″ in diameter. It is available for sale for $350 plus shipping .
This Commission was a tribute to a couple’s wedding and her bouquet. Blue roses do not bloom naturally so that was quite a challenge.
Yes the playing cards are all paint! This was the perfect motif for my Trompe l’oiel skills. I had a grand old time painting them on the top of this small box which was commissioned as a gift for a lover of games and wine. I put Lady bugs on the back for luck!
