This little painting is, for me, a "mini" painting. A painting like this sometimes takes only a couple of hours to do. It's a great way to warm up, take a break from a larger painting, learn a new technique or try out a composition. Sometimes it may take all day in an effort to get the mood just right! Some enterprising artists are making their living by selling miniatures and postcard sized paintings on Ebay. Mine are only occasional, come from me directly, and are framed and ready to hang in a simple gold frame.
By the way, feel free to forward this posting to any of your friends who might be interested in subscribing to my "almost daily" emails! Thanks!
