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! It is available for sale at $75. Please contact me through this site if you are interested in purchasing it.
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.
