This commission was painted as a gift for a young Mountain bike enthusiast. I used actual photos of him for the top of the wooden file box and for the speeding bike on the back face. Painting the motion in the speed shot was a fun new experience for me.
I sometimes pass this spot on the Farmington River on my daily morning walk. I love living so close to this undisturbed area. I painted my view from the shore on this small wooden tray which is 20″ X 8″, handle to handle, and 15″ X 7″ on the interior. Since my signature bug would be impractical I added the turtles which live a little ways up river. It is sealed with polyurethane. Available for sale for $125 plus shipping.
The Clematis bloomed in profusion ‘that’ summer and I immortalize the explosion of color by painting it on an old metal TV tray. This tray is the third in a series of three. Each tray portrays a house of import to the client who commissioned the series.
A wonderful trip to New Orleans inspired this painting of a well known home on Royal Street. Painted on an old TV tray, it is the second in a series of three. Each tray portrays a house of import to the client who commissioned the series.
