Red Spode and Russian Doll Under Cloche

"Red Spode Plate and Russian Doll Under Cloche," 3"x 4",
oil on stretched canvas, (available on etsy)
 I wanted to paint a little somethin, somethin for the Cloche Party over at A Stroll Thru Life and came up with this little number. I was hoping to get a couple little gems done, but I am super busy with commissions and holiday projects so I could only get one piece completed. If you use the search box on my sidebar you can view some of the other cloche paintings I have created in the past few months :) Enjoy!


  1. Oh, I'm so excited to have found another artist! I want to jump for joy! Love your piece for today! Every Friday I try and share a piece of art and I would love to see pieces others do as well. I'm smiling...

  6. How fabulous is that....you can just paint a subject for the cloche party!!! Love the painting by the way.
    No, etsy did not contact me about being featured by People's Style Watch....an etsy team mate of mine found it for me because I was asking about if anyone else had a tremendous increase in views and hearts over the weekend and quite a few sales also.

  7. Amazingly beautiful....how wonderful to be able to PAINT your contribution. :-)

    Warm blessings,

  8. Now there's a true original cloche idea. You are a fantastic artist. Wish I had that talent. Rosie
