The last in the series of Hydrangea plaques has the brightness of spring colors against a darker background with clusters of leaves. A Hummingbird and a Ladybug are visiting the pale blooms. This piece is about 6″ across.
This second plaque in the series has a bright sunny background and is a little larger than the first one, at about 9″ across. I chose to put a little Hummingbird off to the left and a Lady bug on a leaf. This design is joyous with the abundance of blooms on the bush in many stages of color morphing.
Birds are a repeating motif for me. Here are some of my favorites representing eight projects. Three of these birds are painted life-size with realism on the walls of a screened in porch. The others are painted on various pieces found elsewhere on this site.
This unusual request came from a Jimmy Buffet fan. There are two each of these themed, denim, director’s chairs. One set of chairs is themed “Cheeseburger in Paradise” and sports a whimsical cheeseburger ‘lounging’ on a beach chaise. The Parrot is a favorite Buffet symbol and I painted each seat with a slightly differently angled bird. A faux ketchup packet is painted on the arm rest. The other set of chairs is themed “It’s Five O’clock Somewhere”. One of the Five O’clock chairs has a yellow Hibiscus, the other a pink Hibiscus. On the arm rest is a fool the eye cocktail umbrella. Various cocktails share the back rest with a Bird of Paradise. The title of each chair is painted on the rear.
