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.
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.
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.
Rocks and more rocks, painted hyper realistically in liquid acrylics!!! I returned to one of my favorite subjects in the summer of 2017 to paint this charming vintage table. There are at least a dozen heart shaped stones in the oval table top (30″ X 19 “). How many can you find? I’ll let you decide the total number as some are only hinted at! Of course there is a bug on one of the stones. The lower shelf is painted as a single slab of grey marble. The shelf is also painted on the underside so as to continue the Trompe L’oeil illusion. The legs remain their original dark brown stain but I added small grey diamonds to the graceful curves to visually connect the two painted surfaces. The table stands 29” tall and has a drawer tucked under the top tier. This piece is similar to a previously commissioned table named River Stones, and has recently been sold. If you are interested in commissioning a similar piece please feel free to contact me through this site.
