A branch of deep pink Crab Apple blossoms adorn this 11″ X 8″ X 3″ wooden box. I began by painting the entire exterior as a pale green and yellow marble with a candy pink interior. The abundantly lush flowers are painted from photos of a tree in my own yard. A bee is on the top and a Lunar moth is inside the cover.
This was a fun commission! I was given the assignment of “lemons on a box” and I loved doing it! I painted the exterior of a new, unfinished, file box in a deep forest green which makes the lemons pop! I painted whole and cut lemons, slices and wedges, curls of rind, seeds and lemon tree blossoms. And of course a yellow bee for my signature bug!
In early spring I gathered Violets, Grape Hyacinth and a few Vinca blossoms and placed them in a little blue glass creamer on a glassy surface. I painted them on an 8″ wooden plate, slightly larger than life, with their reflection. My signature bug is painted on the back of the plate with an additional flower. This piece is currently for sale for $85 plus shipping. Please contact me thru this site if you are interested in purchasing it.
Dramatic Poppies in fuchsia and variegated orange are painted in fluid acrylic on a 10″ wide wooden heart which can hang on the wall by a hook or by the attached cord. A white Rice-paper butterfly has come to visit. I can paint something similar for you for $75 including shipping in the United States.
