Hydrangea Inspiration

In the midst of the Corvid-10 social distancing I had trouble getting my ‘engines’ started on a new painting. Then I came across a photo I had taken last summer and my inspiration came roaring back. I painted this pale blue Hydrangea  just as it was about to burst open to full bloom. I love the delicateness  I was able to achieve with the life size petals.   I painted the visiting bee with a softer focus to capture his motion in flight.  The small plaque is only 9″ X 7″  and is edged in shades of antique gold.  It is available for sale at $95.   Please contact me through this site if you are interested in purchasing it.

Forty Nine Shades of Grey Stones Pedestal Table

Rock, stones and more rocks, are painted hyper realistically in liquid acrylics on a charming vintage pedestal table. There are well over 49 stones painted in many shades of greys and other colors on the round table top (24″ diameter). The table (originally dark brown) is now pale grey.  Its legs wear their original brass ‘shoes’ so I painted faux brass on the carved rings on the pedestal. Look hard and you will find my signature bug painted among the stones! The table stands 27″ tall and is for sale for $650 plus shipping and handling (based on location, cost to determined prior to purchase).
