This 6″ diameter wooden box was painted for a ballroom enthusiast. I painted a color portrait of the couple on the top and four black and grey silhouettes on the sides. Since the signature couple for this commission are usually dressed in black dance attire, I used the chandeliers and the background colors of a favorite ballroom locale to make the box glow. Doing the ladies in charcoal grey helps to define the two figures.
This commission was painted as a gift for a young gymnastics student. She’s the one in the pink and black outfit. I carefully chose moves from the four Olympic apparatus to fit the structure of the wooden file box.
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).
