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.
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.
This little chair is a charmer with wonderful ‘bones’. It inspired me to paint the cohesive wide soft stripes behind the flowers and butterflies. All the butterflies are real species and most are native to the Northeastern US which is where the little girl who now owns this chair lives. Of course I would never ignore the back!! Don’t you just love Lunar moths? I chose to paint wild flowers like Chicory and wild Asters which are so much less formal and more likely to be part of a child’s real world.
