If you love small works of art, please follow this link to the Howard/Manville Gallery’s 27th Annual Invitational Small Works Show. Located in Kirkland, WA, you will find a beautiful collection of small images worked in a variety of media, and I am delighted to be a part of this year’s show. Two of my miniatures available at the show are: “West Coast Morning” and “Tranquility”. Both paintings are acrylic on paperboard.
This mini painting was inspired by a morning walk along the beach near Tofino, on Vancouver Island. The calm water and soaring gulls made for a lovely start to the day. June is a particularly nice time to visit the area. 🙂
This miniature painting is of the beautiful estuary near Parksville BC, where the Englishman River meets the sea. Many birds, creatures and a variety of grasses and plants thrive here. A wonderful place to walk through.
New miniature painting: “Gulls Along the Shore” (1.5 x 4 inches small). This little painting was inspired by a trip to Gabriola Island, near Nanaimo BC, and a walk along the lovely stony shores there.
Here is the first mini in a new series I’ve started, titled “West Coast Moments”. This series features landscape scenes from our beautiful west coast, but with a focus on unusual composition and/or lighting as I experienced it while on location. It makes for a nice creative challenge!
“West Coast Moments” painting #1
Acrylic on board, 4″ x 1.5″ small.
The last tiny details have been added, the antique frames selected and the paintbrushes finally set down…and I’m so very happy to be finished!!!
“Pieces of 8” is the title of my latest miniature painting project, featuring eight tiny acrylic landscapes, for the “Symbolically 8 Exhibition” at Gallery 8 on Salt Spring Island. The show is running now through to May 8th.
Here are the individual paintings:
Gallery 8’s upcoming anniversary show “Symbolically 8 Exhibition”, on Salt Spring Island, opens on Friday April 14 at 5pm-8pm. This show features a wonderful collection of artworks by gallery artists including paintings, sculpture and more.
