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.
This is a second version of the Cosmos in the Sun plaque. This wooden plaque is painted with 5 bright pink Cosmos in the sunlight. I kept the yellow green butterfly subtle so as not to compete with the blossom . The piece is 8″ wide . It is for sale at $50 including shipping. Plate stand available for purchase separately. If you are interested in purchasing this plaque or ordering a similar piece with a different motif, please feel free to contact me through this site.
This plaque is a winter scene with dried pale blossoms clinging to the branches without bright colors or green leaves. It is the fourth in a series of Hydrangeas painted in various seasons. These blossoms are beautiful at every stage of life! The pagoda reflecting in the water adds an interesting element. I could not put an insect or bird into the painting as it would be inappropriate for wintertime so the bee is on the reverse side by my signature!
