Wood Plaques: Sometimes I feel an overwhelming urge to use oils paint (mine are water based) to create small scenes or portraits on wood plaques. Wood creates an additional dimension/challenge that I love...working the natural knots and grain into the painting...those patterns "tell" me what the plaque wants to be! Each piece is carefully varnished to protect the finished surface and provided with a leather and eyelet "hook" for easy display... they also look great displayed on mini easels.
Cutting Boards, Cups and Such: some of my paintings are just so fun to turn into glass cutting boards, cups, tiles and such by sending them to "Finer Works" (they also provide my giclee prints) for production. Each is made by reproducing one of my original works transforming paintings into everyday usable objects.
