This wooden file box with red and yellow roses is the third in a series of commissioned boxes. I painted the box to look like it was made of stone. The insect is my version of a Japanese beetle.
This big eyed tortoise shell kitty is painted on a smooth stone which is about 8″ wide. She seems to be very possessive of the Christmas wrap she has claimed. The painting is based on one primary photo and two secondary photos supplied by the client.
I enjoy painting animal portraits from photos of real dogs. I capture their personal markings, features and especially their eyes. I choose beach stones with relatively smooth surfaces which are about the size of large potatoes! Do you have a favorite dog that you would like me to paint for you? I need nice clear photos of your animal’s face plus additional photos showing their body, paws and tails. Either prints or electronic PDF files are fine. I try to include as many details as I can. These stones are $50 each plus shipping. Larger stones are available at varying prices. Contact me through this site if you are interested in having a unique stone painted.
These little rocks were painted just for fun, although some were commissions. The crab and the fish are painted on smooth flat stones and are only a couple inches long. The Frogs are pretty much life size. And one is actually painted on a piece of lumpy concrete! Can you tell?
