Some Wine, a Bride and a Lighthouse
I worked on some stuff for my winning followers last night, but took a minute (actually 2 hours) today to do some little paintings. I love miniature paintings, and I wish I had started making them earlier in my career. They are so much fun, and I am really an "instant gratification" type of person-so being able to knock out a painting in less than an hour, makes me very happy. =) When I do large paintings and commissioned work, I have a tendancy to work for hours and hours and hours, without stopping for food, drink or bathroom breaks. It's kind of ridiculous! But I just get so eager to see the end result, that I forget about all the things I need for my body.... That wasn't the case today! I would work on a painting, finish it and then take care of something I needed or hang with the kids. And then it was back to the grindstone to do another. So here is what was cranked out today: an abstract, an word painting, a bride, some wine bottles and a lighthouse. =)
1 1/4"x 1 1/2"
2" X 2"
1 3/4" X 1 1/2"

They still need to be framed and then will go up on etsy. Unless, I am out of frames... then they will be mounted on a heavy cardboard and listed after that. =)
