Hydrangea Inspiration

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.  It is available for sale at $95.   Please contact me through this site if you are interested in purchasing it.

Blue Doodle Rocking chair

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.

February Sun on Snow Tray

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.

Blue Colonial House Portrait

The owners of this lovely blue Colonial home commissioned this portrait of their home  when they knew they would be moving.  I photographed it a few times last summer to catch all the beautiful flowers and then used my artistic license to put them all in bloom together.  The piece is painted on a wooden plaque 14″X10″ and is only a little larger in scale than the miniature three dimensional houses I painted exclusively for many years.  This was like old times for me and I loved doing it.  If you are interested in having a portrait done of your home please contact me.
