Zinnias in a Ball Jar

Bright Zinnias in an old blue glass Ball Jar sit on a table by a window.  I really had fun with this one; from the variety of styles and colors that Zinnias come in, to the glass jar, to the raised lettering and the crocheted doily underneath.  And of course a little honey bee has come by to check things out! I painted this commission on a 12″ X 9″ wood plaque.

Hydrangea Inspiration

In the midst of the Corvid-10 social distancing I had trouble getting my ‘engines’ started on a new painting. Then I came across a photo I had taken last summer and my inspiration came roaring back. I painted this pale blue Hydrangea  just as it was about to burst open to full bloom. I love the delicateness  I was able to achieve with the life size petals.   I painted the visiting bee with a softer focus to capture his motion in flight.  The small plaque is only 9″ X 7″  and is edged in shades of antique gold.  It is available for sale at $95.   Please contact me through this site if you are interested in purchasing it.
