Here are two of my latest handpainted Slate pieces. The two frogs “Room For Two” were from a photo I took in my backyard when two little tree frogs decided to take up residence in my birdhouse. I painted them on unfinished Italian slate squares, sealing with a matte finish over my stone paints. I enjoy trying out these paints on all surfaces and so far found that they work well on anything from metal to leaves to stone. Best part is, they clean up with brush soap and water!
What a unique presentation! How are these tiles displayed?
The little frogs are adorable. Good job.
A season is set for everything; a time for every experience under heaven.
Thank you Edna for the nice comments on both pieces. I put felt backing on each slate after I have given them a matte finish, place my studio name on the back and then I display them on the small wooden picture frame holders (similar to plate holders) or small tabletop easels for miniature paintings. They can be framed as well, but they can get heavy, so they will need to be wired for hanging.
I thought perhaps that was the case. They are certainly strong enough to stand on their own without the distraction of framing.
What a cute pair! You did a great job on them.

That's the only way I want to see frogs - ;) - nice job. What an interesting story behind the painting.
Thank you so much for the nice comments! I have added them to my new website: www.wildhawkstudio.net and have been getting good feedback on them. I enjoy painting on stone sometimes as a break from traditional canvas and paper. The stone brings out the natural look and compliments my wildlife subjects and is a bit different. I have also painted aspen leaves, tree bark, papyrus and now glass tiles. I am still adding images to my website, so please check it out and offer feedback. Thanks!
Good to see your painting. After long time saw this kind of beautiful work. Interesting...
What a lovely pair and they suit the slate background so well... Their eyes have so much expression too......congratulations Great work.
