Mini art

on November 14, 2012

If you know me, at all, you know I’m always looking for new painting projects (ie: give me something to paint on and I’ll try it…at least once). When I saw these mini canvases (and easels!), while dragging Fred through a craft store, I just had to try them.

I’ve done three, so far and, aside from realizing how frustrating it is to have 50-year old eyes and big fingers working with little paint brushes, it’s been a lot of fun.

I was quite excited when I sold the poppies (and have another order for 2 more!).  I love when people appreciate my artwork – whether it be just telling me they like a piece or actually buying it, both are a huge compliment for me.

The poppies and lighthouse I did from my own photographs. The octopus was, I believe, either from a stock photo or a Nat Geo photo. I think I’ll dig through my photos to see what I’m going to paint next…
