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.
The last in the series of Hydrangea plaques has the brightness of spring colors against a darker background with clusters of leaves. A Hummingbird and a Ladybug are visiting the pale blooms. This piece is about 6″ across.
This second plaque in the series has a bright sunny background and is a little larger than the first one, at about 9″ across. I chose to put a little Hummingbird off to the left and a Lady bug on a leaf. This design is joyous with the abundance of blooms on the bush in many stages of color morphing.
This charcoal-black single-seater bench is painted in Trompe L’oeil style with a collection of stones, slate, mica and natural crystal scattered on top. The bowl and the turtle are carved from stone as well. For a little something organic I painted two feathers and an autumn leaf. Of course there is a little lady bug, can you find it? If you are interested in having me paint something similar to this piece please send me an email or leave a comment.
