This little mini titled: “Shack Island” (2 x 4.5 inches), will be a part of the third annual miniature art show presented by Excellent Frameworks located in Duncan BC. The show opens this Saturday, Nov. 30th, from 12pm – 3pm, and features a wonderful collection of tiny artworks, so please stop by if you are in the area and see these little gems!
This miniature painting is of Shack Island, located near Pipers Lagoon Park in Nanaimo BC. The park is terrific with pathways, beach and a beautiful lagoon. Shack Island is a lovely spot to walk out to when the tide permits.
A series of seasonal paintings, these tiny miniatures are heading to the 11th Annual Small Works show at Gallery 8 on Salt Spring Island. The opening reception is this Friday, Nov. 22, at 5pm and the show runs thru to Dec. 31st. Some of my smallest works, these little guys measure approximately 1.5 x 1 inch in size.
I’d like to give a big thank you to Susan Schaefer of the Island Arts Magazine for the feature about miniature painting in the upcoming winter issue. This is a terrific magazine focused on the arts in the Vancouver Island area with many great reads and information inside. You can find more info about the Island Arts Magazine on FB and at the website: http://www.islandartsmag.ca Thank you!
Here is the last miniature painting of my summer series featuring some of the beautiful beaches on the west coast of Vancouver Island. This is a view of the lovely Wickaninnish beach area, titled: “A Day on the Coast” (measuring a tiny 2.25 x 3.5 inches in size).
This miniature painting was done with acrylic on art-board and took approximately fifteen hours to complete.
Here is another little piece from my summer series, titled: “When the Tide Rolls In” (1.75 x 4.25 inches small). This is a view from along the Wickaninnish beach area on the west coast of Vancouver Island.
Another miniature painting from the northwest coastal area on Vancouver Island, titled “Summer Shore” (1.75 x 4.25 inches small). One of the things I love best about the west coast is how in the course of one day, the water can change from steel gray to sky blue, and everything in between.
This little painting titled “Shack Island” (a tiny 2 x 4.5 inches) is a scene from the Pipers Lagoon area in Nanaimo BC. It’s a lovely spot with walking trails, a large lagoon and beach area. When the tide is out, you can sometimes walk out to Shack Island and see the old cabins there.
