Tiger Lily Plaque Twosome

My first Tiger Lily Plaque was so well recieved, I happily revisited the concept.  Here I painted two bright orange Tiger Lilies in sharp focus against a clear blue sky! A honey bee is flying nearby.  The painting is based on photos I took on the Bridge of Flowers in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts over ten years ago.  This oval plaque is edged in metallic green and is approximately 11″ X 8″.  It delivers a  great punch!  It is available for sale at $75.  Please contact me through this site if you are interested in purchasing it.

 

Tiger Lily Plaque

Bright orange Tiger Lilies are painted in sharp focus against a clear blue sky!  I based this latest painting on a photo I took on the Bridge of Flowers in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts over ten years ago.  Notice the last image which shows the flowers before I added their spots.  I almost stopped painting there, but I am glad I continued.   Yes there is a bug.  Can you find it? The small plaque is only 9″ X 7″ but delivers a  great punch!  This particular plaque has been sold, but if you are interested in commissioning something similar, please contact me through this site.

Irises Short and Sweet Plaque

Springtime brings beautiful Irises in a wide range of colors and styles.  This small plaque (9″ X 7″) depicts a fairly low to the ground purple and white variety that I fell in love with at Elizabeth Park in Hartford last year.  This time the visiting insect is a honey bee.  I would love to paint something like this for you if you want as this one is already in the hands of a happy owner.

Barn Board Porch Mural

This mural with a Trompe L’oeil wood surface is painted on the porch of my own home.  For more than 25 years these walls were just a slightly textured, ugly brown, metal surface.   Then ten years ago I decided to paint it!  Thank you to my sister-in-law for suggesting the faux barn board wood surface.  On the wall which is viewed directly from inside my dining room, I painted rambling wild Roses that ‘bloom’ all year long!  On one of the sides I created a strawberry jar loaded with luscious berries.  There are bees that visit the flowers and a butterfly by the strawberries.  On  the other side is a squirrel which initially even startled my cats.  They have ignored it ever since!  In the winter I hang baskets of artificial green plants to keep a little summertime always just on the other side of the sliding door.
