Original Stargazer Lily Acrylic Painting

My Third Favorite Flower To Paint Or Draw

                                                  STARGAZER II
I started with a white background but decided to change it to black for more contrast.

I remember painting this while I was living in a cabin in the woods with a wood stove in Saratoga Springs, New York.

Thom used to feed the chipmunks that lived in the area and hung out in the woodpile by hand. They got so tame, they’d come when we called and actually eat out of his hand.

I loved it there but the weird landlord used to cover the security light sensors with duct tape and then steal our oak firewood at night…

Dichroic Glass Magnetic Eyeglass Holder

The Colors In This Glass Are Breathtaking…

I bought these pieces from a dicroic glass artist at a art and craft show because the colors were so gorgeous…I didn’t know what I was going to do with them at the time…but eventually I got around to it…

I hand cut a piece of aluminum so I could drill holes for the wire lanyard, attached the magnet to the back, and here it is…

Vintage 14 Karat Lost Wax Casting Of A Colorado Columbine Flower

Or, I’m So Old My Work Is Now Vintage

I completely fabricated the original design in sterling silver, way back in my little house in Crawford, Colorado. I was living there back in 1979, I think…Also when I joined the Black Canyon Firefighter Crew out of Cedaredge, Colorado…

Then I pulled a mold so I could cast them for my very first production line. Didn’t go well, though, that’s when the Hunt Brothers manipulated the precious metals market and Silver went from $5 an ounce to $50 and then crashed. They almost destroyed my business…and I almost lost my house…

And I survived…

This Is What Happens When Jewelers Start Painting…

Fall Colors Original Abstract Painting

I wanted to try a painting similar to the old pen and ink drawings I use to do and this is what transpired. I mixed many different browns and grays and used some metallic gold paint in the details. During the process I experimented with a host of different textures, so it is a very unique piece.
It is an original acrylic painting on a 24 x 30 x 3/4 inch stretched canvas. I sealed it with a UV resistant varnish. I painted the sides so it can be hung unframed, and will ship it that way.
It is signed, dated and copyrighted by Laura Wilson.
This painting is a one of a kind original.
