This past year was a bit of a surprise to me. As the year started out at the Gallery, I thought I had a good batch of minis (2.5×3.5 inches) and really did not plan to paint any more. As the months rolled on these little things began selling more than I anticipated and so I had to change course and do some more. I am finding that I rather enjoy painting them too. It still surprises me that I can learn so much by doing such a small work. But it is quite wonderful! And these beautiful floating frames that my wonderful husband makes for them are the bomb. I really enjoy seeing people’s reactions as they study them. I think some of them would like a magnifying glass to look a little closer…I may just put one there to see what happens.
