This oval plaque is small but dramatic. The pale rose is is just opening, revealing hints of pink and yellow. There is a bee hovering just below the leaves. The wooden plaque is painted in fluid acrylics, is 6″ X 4″ and is ready for hanging with a hook on the back. It is for sale at $65 including shipping and handling within the US. If you are interested in purchasing this plaque or custom ordering a similar piece with a different motif, please contact me through this site.
Pansies are fun to paint; I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again!! For this custom project the client wanted Pansies painted on her two large metal platters which were bordered with a wooden rim (15″ diameter). I covered over their original motif with a grayish blue background color. And then I just had fun! Of course in addition to painting a variety of floral patterns and color variations, I put in buds and seed pods and wilted blooms along with a bee in each one.
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.
