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.
I love when clients asks for unusual themes!! Beach Volleyball on a wooden file box! Such fun!!
A branch of deep pink Crab Apple blossoms adorn this 11″ X 8″ X 3″ wooden box. I began by painting the entire exterior as a pale green and yellow marble with a candy pink interior. The abundantly lush flowers are painted from photos of a tree in my own yard. A bee is on the top and a Lunar moth is inside the cover.
Now for something a little different. This wooden file box was another fun commission. My assignment was simply bicycles. Of course I wanted a variety of bikes! I put a sweet one with a basket of flowers on the top and a tandem bicycle on the front. On the sides I painted a high wheeled penny-farthing and a mid century bike. The unicycle on the back is in tribute to my two granddaughters who ride their unicycles with aplomb! The mint green and cream background stripes unify the whole piece.
