Pale Rose With Bee Plaque

This oval plaque is small but dramatic.  The pale rose is is just opening, revealing hints of pink and yellow.  There is a bee hovering just below the  leaves.  The wooden plaque is painted in fluid acrylics, is 6″  X  4″ and is ready for hanging with a hook on the back.  It is for sale at $65 including shipping and handling within the US. If you are interested in purchasing this plaque or custom ordering a similar piece with a different motif, please contact me through this site.

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.

Japanese Memories Table

This striking side table began life as a solid wood vintage Early American style nightstand.  I painted it a  deep navy blue and  created faux marble surfaces in shades of grey on both the top and lower shelves.  This is a trompe l’oeil  piece of art work, where everything looks real enough to pick up!  On the upper surface I depicted items collected on a visit to Japan; There is a sophisticate  navy colored fan, and a pair of chopsticks encased in a fabric sheath, secured by a braided knot.  I added three glass marbles through which you can see light shinning.   I folded a crane and a swallow from paper purchased in Tokyo to use as models to paint the two Origami birds on the lower shelf.  This unique table is currently for sale for $450 plus shipping.  The top is  14″ X 16″ and it stands  27″ tall.Please contact me through this site if you are interested in this table or perhaps a custom painted item.
