These two plaques are a depiction of a friend’s comments about his stressful work situation. I painted the Elephant one a few years prior to the trapeze one. They are 8 1/2″ X 6 1/2″ each.
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.
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.
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.
