Welcome to my Art Blog! I paint or draw most weekdays and sometimes finish a painting a day. I fondly call them my "Postcards from Paradise" because it's such a beautiful place the Lord made here for us.

"Shoreline Reflections" Miniature Landscape Daily Painting

Original oil painting

Low clouds behind trees at water's edge, with moody evening light reflecting trees in the water and blue streaks from the sky above.

This one is lovely too. I can't believe you can work this small - I think I'd go cross-eyed!

Yes, it's a bit crazy! A couple of decades ago I never would've thought I'd be painting this tiny; most of my pieces were 24x18" or larger. And of course there were a lot fewer of them and they were pretty expensive for most folks.

So painting the little 'uns has been a lot of fun by several measures!

Yes, I agree, very lovely and what a challenge! You pack in the idea of detail somehow in such a tiny piece!

I like that way you said that, Mary. To "pack in the idea of detail" is very descriptive!
