Pink Roses Climb A Brick Wall

This unique, dynamic profusion of pink roses climbing a brick wall is hand painted by me in a hyper-realistic style on an old slate roof tile. I can do a variety of floral designs similar to this one for you however this particular one is in the home of a loving owner. In this case the realistic roses are depicted in all stages of growth from bud to full bloom to faded blossom. The attention to detail is evident in the whole piece, including the bricks painted in the background. The scene is visited by three life-like butterflies and a bumble bee. A leather cord is threaded through the original nail holes in the slate and is secured with a knot and a pretty ceramic bead. The slate is 24′ tall and 12″ wide and it weighs 7 pounds. Please contact me if you would like to commission something similar.

Roses on a Mini-Mural of 16 Slate Tiles

A profusion of pink roses!  I painted these roses on sixteen 4″X4″ stone tiles in all stages of bloom from tight bud to seed pod.  They link one to the other in a continuous six foot long composition, with a slanted faux brick background.  The client  shipped me the fine slate tiles, fifteen of which were installed across the front of a vanity in his home .   I requested that he include an extra ‘just in case’ tile that I could also use to test my sealants and paints on.  In the end I painted the 16th tile anyway.   I added a signature honey bee and a little lady bug.  Can you find them both?

Peach Roses on Slate with Brick Wall

Lush peachy pink colored roses in all stages of blooming are painted in acrylics as they climb a brick wall on a 19″ X 12″ piece of old roofing slate.   Some roses are heavy with petals glistening in the sun, others are barely opened buds or drying rose hips. The background bricks were inspired by the dark stains imbedded in the old slate.  My signature insect here is a pale Malachite butterfly.
