Orchid with Butterfly Plaque

Orchids are an intense flower and I painted this close up image to emphasize that. Deep fuchsia pink and red flowers stand out on the grey background. A white Tree Nymph Butterfly is my signature insect for this piece. The small plaque is  8 1/2″ X 6 3/4″ with an antique gold edging. It is ready for hanging with a hook on the back. It is for sale at $80 including shipping and handling in the United States. If you are interested in purchasing this plaque or custom ordering a similar piece with a different motif, please contact me through this site.

Peach Roses Climbing Brick Wall on Slate

Upon request, I revisited painting a profusion of peach colored roses  against a brick wall using an old slate roof tile as my canvas.  The realistic roses are depicted in all stages of growth from bud to full bloom to faded rose hip. The attention to detail is evident in the whole piece, including the bricks painted in the background. The scene includes a Rice-paper butterfly and a honey 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 8 pounds.  I can paint something similar for you if you’d like!

Fuchsia Pink Rose with Butterfly

This lush fuchsia colored Rose is a just barely opened blossom painted in sharp focus against a diffused green background.   The inspiration for this painting is a photo I took this past spring in the Rose Garden in Elizabeth Park, Hartford, CT.    The purple butterfly is an ‘enhanced’ Common Blue.  The small plaque is only 9″ X 7″ but comes on strong!  It is available for sale at $80 including shipping.  Please contact me through this site if you are interested in purchasing it.
