Hearts of Stone Table

Rocks and more rocks, painted hyper realistically in liquid acrylics!!!  I recently returned to one of my favorite subjects this summer (2017) when I painted a charming vintage table.  There are at least a dozen heart shaped stones in the oval table top  (30″ X 19 “).  How many can you find? I’ll let you decide the total number as some are only hinted at!   Of course there is a bug on one of the stones.  The lower shelf is painted as a single slab of grey marble.  The shelf is also painted on the underside so as to continue the Trompe L’oeil illusion.  The legs remain their original dark brown stain but I added small grey diamonds to the graceful curves to visually connect the two painted surfaces.   The table stands 29” tall and has a drawer tucked under the top tier.  This piece is similar to a previously commissioned table named River Stones, however this one is available! The table is for sale for $400.
