The Clematis bloomed in profusion ‘that’ summer and I immortalize the explosion of color by painting it on an old metal TV tray. This tray is the third in a series of three. Each tray portrays a house of import to the client who commissioned the series.
Deep purple Clematis climb a birch tree while being visited by a Monarch butterfly. This fluid acrylic painting is done on a 10″ wide wooden heart which can hang on the wall by a hook or by the attached cord. It is for sale for $75 including shipping in the United States.
This mailbox was plain white plastic when it came to me for decoration. The home it stands in front of is known for its fabulous Clematis in the spring which is where I took my inspiration from. My goal for painting this multitude of flowers was to paint quick and loose for a joyous welcome. I think I succeeded! Look for the Monarch butterfly in the corner of one side and the honeybee on the other side. When I finished the art work, the mailbox was brushed with several coats of polyurethane to make it New England weather worthy!
