Pale Rose With Bee Plaque

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.

Pansy Platter Pair

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.

Tiger Lily Plaque Twosome

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.

 

Irises Short and Sweet Plaque

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.
