This small file box is the second in a four part series of sports figures. It was commissioned to honor a special swim instructor who made a huge difference in the life of the student. I had a lot of fun painting the water!! I could not resist adding some water droplets inside the box. My signature insect is a ladybug on the bottom of the box (not shown). Are you interested in commissioning a painted box, starting at $85 plus shipping? Please contact me through this site.
In the midst of the Corvid-10 social distancing I had trouble getting my ‘engines’ started on a new painting. Then I came across a photo I had taken last summer and my inspiration came roaring back. I painted this pale blue Hydrangea just as it was about to burst open to full bloom. I love the delicateness I was able to achieve with the life size petals. I painted the visiting bee with a softer focus to capture his motion in flight. The small plaque is only 9″ X 7″ and is edged in shades of antique gold. Although this one has sold, I can paint something similar for $95 if you desire . Please contact me through this site if you are interested in commissioning anything.
This child’s rocker is painted with lots of happy doodles of stars, stripes, dots, hearts and a few little flowers in shades of blues, greens, salmon and white. I painted energetic frogs leaping at dragon flies on both the front and rear backrests. Lady bugs creep along the runners. This very sturdy rocking chair stands 25″ tall and is 15″ across the backrest. The seat is wicker. It is appropriate for a girl or boy. For Sale at $125 plus shipping and handling.
Sunlight on snow is so striking I could not resist painting it on the 18″ X 12″ center of this wooden tray. Yet I am told by some that it looks like light from a full moon. What do you see? I based this painting on a photo I took of my own backyard in the winter of 2015 when snow piled up on logs from trees that had fallen in the previous year’s storm. I added the little rabbit from a photo I took a few years back. She is just sitting there taking it all in! This tray is available for sale at $85 including shipping within the United States. Please contact me through this site if you are interested in purchasing it.
