Stones and Feathers on a Bench

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.

Roses on a Mini-Mural of 16 Slate Tiles

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?
