A Mini or Two

Well, as you know I’ve been trying to be more consistent with my art. In fact I’m trying to do at least some painting every day. (Yes, I consider using pastels painting.) Yesterday I embarked on a new direction with my art – mini paintings. Now I’ve done paintings as small as 4×6 inches before, but these mini paintings are only 3.5×2.5 inches. Now that’s mini! I actually did two of them yesterday and had tons of fun. I’m quickly appreciating the mini canvas for it’s ability to allow me to create and experiment while at the same time limiting my space. Just as a blank page can bring about writer’s block for an author (and I know because I’ve been there), the blank canvas can freeze an artist in their tracks. But these tiny pieces of paper are so, well, tiny, they aren’t intimidating in the least. Here’s to the mini! And here are my first two, both in pastels!
