A Walk Through the Park – in miniature

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.

Old meets new!

I came across these little Italian frames in an antique store recently and painted two tiny miniatures to fit them. The minis are painted on hardboard and displayed without glass, which I think suits the time-worn look of the these lovely little frames. Now to find more little gems! “Country Days I & II” acrylic on hardboard. Both minis are 1.5 x 2 inches small.
