I am so proud to announce a three page spread of my artwork in a national publication: the September/October 2016 issue of Rocks and Minerals Magazine. More than a year ago I was contacted by the editors of this gorgeous magazine asking if they could showcase my work in their regular feature of artists whose art focuses on rocks and minerals. I was over the moon at the idea and am blown away with the results! Thank you to this wonderful publication and a special thanks to Susan Robinson for all her help in facilitating the process.
This table is painted to appear as if the top is inlaid with a variety of stone tiles fitted together like an old crazy quilt. The lower shelf is painted as a single slab of Marble. All of the faux “stones” are based on actual stone found in nature. Subtle colors of grey, camel and gold were chosen for the legs from frequently used colors in the stones. The table top is 16″ square, the lower shelf is 12″ square. The table stands 27.5″ tall. It is available for sale at $180 plus shipping.
Two projects with painted stones and marble.
This little wooden table has been transformed. The faux marble surface is painted in a range of soft greys on the 14″ round top. A bead necklace of pale green, lavender and pink quartz with a lotus motif pendant is painted in Trompe l’oeil style. The necklace looks real enough to pick up and wear! Of course the marble illusion is painted on the underside too! I kept the colors on the pedestal soft and a little mottled, and paired them with creamy off white and just a little bit of gold banding. The table stands 25″ tall and weighs 5.5 pounds. $150.00 plus shipping and handling. Please contact me if you are interested in purchasing this table.
