Magnolia Plaque

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 .

Tiger Lily Plaque Twosome

My first Tiger Lily Plaque was so well received, 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! This one has been sold but I can paint you a similar one for $75.  If you are interested in purchasing something like this please contact me through this site.

 

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.
