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!  It is available for sale at $75.  Please contact me through this site if you are interested in purchasing it.

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.

Morning Glory Box

Preview

Morning Glories on a nice wood box!   Five sides are painted with intense Blue Heaven Morning Glories on this nicely crafted wooden box.   A fat bumble bee visits on the top and there is a little lady bug on a stem and a dragon fly underneath by my signature.  Yes it opens and closes securely, almost secretly! Keep something special hidden inside.  The box is 5″ tall and 4 1/2 ” squarish.  For sale for $55 plus shipping and handling.  Please contact me through this site if you are interested.

Garden Fence Painted on Three Drawer Chest

I painted lots of pretty tall  flowers growing behind a picket fence on this solid wood, three drawer, storage piece.  Hollyhocks bloom in profusion up the front, right across all three drawers.  One of the side panels sports Sunflowers while the other has Morning Glories climbing up a wrought iron trellis.  Look closely and you will find three butterflies, a bumble bee, a lady bug, a dragon fly and two charming birdhouses.  The top is painted to appear like it is made of slats of wood.   The greenery wraps around to the back just enough to complete the design all the way.   This small chest stands 26 ” tall, is 12″ wide and 14″ deep (counting the knobs).  Perfect for a dorm room or even a bathroom!  This piece sold as soon as it was posted, however if you would like me to paint something in this style please fell free to contact me through this site.
