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.
I painted this Magnolia based on a photo I took in Seattle. The blossom is just a little past perfection which makes it vulnerable and real. The butterfly in flight comes from a photograph I took at the Magic Wings, a butterfly conservatory in Massachusetts. The wooden plaque is 8 1/2″ X 6 3/4″ and is for sale at $80 including shipping .
Bright orange Tiger Lilies are painted in sharp focus against a clear blue sky! I based this latest painting on a photo I took on the Bridge of Flowers in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts over ten years ago. Notice the last image which shows the flowers before I added their spots. I almost stopped painting there, but I am glad I continued. Yes there is a bug. Can you find it? The small plaque is only 9″ X 7″ but delivers a great punch! This particular plaque has been sold, but if you are interested in commissioning something similar, please contact me through this site.
This is Avis. She is resting on a dining room chair, completely focused on her owner. I painted her portrait on a stone which is approximately 8″ X 5″ oval.
