This is a second version of a plaque I did two years ago which I recently painted again upon request from a client. I never do two identical paintings, but I do revisit some of them on occasion especially if someone asks me to. This is the same pagoda I painted in the background of the first version but the faded browning blossoms could be just be blooms ‘from a different year’. I love how Hydrangeas can be beautiful all year long. I am including here a photo of an early stage of the paint process before the flowers were painted. This plaque is 12″ wide and 9″ tall.
Sunlight on snow is so striking I could not resist painting it on the 18″ X 12″ center of this wooden tray. Yet I am told by some that it looks like light from a full moon. What do you see? I based this painting on a photo I took of my own backyard in the winter of 2015 when snow piled up on logs from trees that had fallen in the previous year’s storm. I added the little rabbit from a photo I took a few years back. She is just sitting there taking it all in! This tray is available for sale at $85 including shipping within the United States. Please contact me through this site if you are interested in purchasing it.
