Fuchsia Pink Rose with Butterfly

This lush fuchsia colored Rose is a just barely opened blossom painted in sharp focus against a diffused green background.   The inspiration for this painting is a photo I took this past spring in the Rose Garden in Elizabeth Park, Hartford, CT.    The purple butterfly is an ‘enhanced’ Common Blue.  The small plaque is only 9″ X 7″ but comes on strong!  It is available for sale at $80 including shipping.  Please contact me through this site if you are interested in purchasing it.

Tea Time Plaque

This  plaque is painted with tea pots, a tea cup and saucer, a mug, and a cocoa pot all sitting on a wooden surface with doilies.  The details are meticulously painted in my hyper-realistic style and are placed against an eggplant colored background.  All the items depicted are from my own collection.  The tall antique pot belonged to my late mother-in-law.  The modern mug in the center shows a famous historical Japanese event.   It had been years since I painted china and it was so much fun to revisit this motif.   The wooden plaque is 13″ X 9″ and is bordered with golden paint.  It is currently hanging in the entryway of a coastal bed and breakfast in Japan.  Are you intrigued by this type of motif?  Please contact me through this site and I will paint something  similar to it just for you.

Parrot Tulip Plaque

A longing for Springtime in the middle of winter  inspired the theme  for this 10″ wide plaque. I was charmed by the showiness of these rich pink Parrot Tulips when I first saw them.  I tried to capture their intensity and make them  leap above the accompanying standard yellow tulips growing behind them.  The park-like scene is bordered with a metallic green band.  Although this item is a commission, and therefore is sold, I am always interested in doing something similar for you if you are interested.  Feel free to contact me through this site.
