I have decorated wooden boxes with paintings of all sorts of animals, flowers, and figures (knights in shining armor, toreros, dragons, clowns, etc.). These are executed with fine brushes and stand up to scrutiny with a magnifying glass. Also in the related genre of painted wooden panel, my popular vegetable, fruit, and shellfish plaques are popular gifts. Some of the subjects I have painted on wall-mountable plaques are morel mushrooms, mussels and crabs, eggs, garlic and onions, tomatoes and peppers, lemons and limes. These ‘kitchen art’ panels are sealed with several layers of polyurethane to withstand the inevitable steam and grease build-up that happens when they are displayed in kitchens.
