Aster Garden

16x20 oil
This was commissioned as a 70th birthday present for a very special lady.
Now that she has received the gift I can finally post it.
I expanded my limited palette for this one, adding some Quinocridone Magenta and Dioxazine Purple for the vivid colors in the flowers.

Restoring a dower chest

This 1780's PA German blanket chest was stripped of it's original paint decoration, so I painted it back on again and aged the surface to make it appear original to the piece.
