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.
A profusion of pink roses! I painted these roses on sixteen 4″X4″ stone tiles in all stages of bloom from tight bud to seed pod. They link one to the other in a continuous six foot long composition, with a slanted faux brick background. The client shipped me the fine slate tiles, fifteen of which were installed across the front of a vanity in his home . I requested that he include an extra ‘just in case’ tile that I could also use to test my sealants and paints on. In the end I painted the 16th tile anyway. I added a signature honey bee and a little lady bug. Can you find them both?
