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.
Pansies are fun to paint; I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again!! For this custom project the client wanted Pansies painted on her two large metal platters which were bordered with a wooden rim (15″ diameter). I covered over their original motif with a grayish blue background color. And then I just had fun! Of course in addition to painting a variety of floral patterns and color variations, I put in buds and seed pods and wilted blooms along with a bee in each one.
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.
I painted this Magnolia based on a photo I took in Seattle. The blossom is just a little past perfection which makes it vulnerable and real. The butterfly in flight comes from a photograph I took at the Magic Wings, a butterfly conservatory in Massachusetts. The wooden plaque is 8 1/2″ X 6 3/4″ and is for sale at $80 including shipping .
