It’s a birthday celebration at Gallery 8 on Salt Spring Island! These two new miniature paintings are at Gallery 8 as part of their 9th anniversary show. A little taste of Canadiana and thoughts of summer days to come…
“Old Country Charm” (1.75 x 5.25 inches) Acrylic on board
“Horses in the Field” (1.75 x 5.25 inches) Acrylic on board
I find few things lovelier than a leisurely stroll through a beautiful park, on a very fine spring day. Largely, I suspect, because I don’t have to battle allergies that accompany spring’s grand arrival.
This painting depicts springtime in Beacon Hill Park, Victoria BC.
“Walk Through the Park” Acrylic on board (2 x 4.5 inches small)
Here is a look at the same painting with rough edges and a quarter to show scale:
On Saturday, April 21st of this month, I will be setting up a mini studio and doing a demo on painting in miniature at Excellent Frameworks in Duncan BC.
The demo will take place in the gallery from 1pm – 4pm and is open to everyone.
I will be working on a painting, answering questions and offering folks a chance to try their hand at a wee bit of mini painting. If you are interested in miniature art, and are in the area, please stop by and say hello!
It’s a chilly winter morning at the studio today! Slow drive in but a pretty winter view all around. The chickadees are busy in the hedgerow outside my window and flitting about the Christmas lights. These sweet little guys are just the inspiration I need today. Maybe a new winter painting… 🙂
Looking forward to tonight! It’s the opening reception for the Annual Small Works show at Gallery 8 on Salt Spring Island, from 5-8pm. The show continues through December and features many small and delightful artworks! Here are the two tiniest minis that I am contributing to the show at 2″x1.5″ each:
And these two slightly larger works at 2″x3″ and 3″x2″ respectively:
