Mini Artworks

I’ve been doing a few paintings on small 5” x 7” canvasses recently and enjoying scaling down – the longest side is about the length of a standard pencil. A good excuse to dust off my tiny ‘000’ brushes. The new smaller sizes mean I can offer a lower price for commissions and sales, yay! That is, as long as the subject will fit on a postcard size format! Here’s a couple of recent examples…

New Year, Fresh Start

Happy New Year!  The start of the year means looking ahead with hope, anticipation and enthusiasm.  2016 was a bit of a tough one for me, so it’s time to move forward and hope 2017 will be better.  I’m sure I’m not the only person feeling this way.

With that in mind, I plan to be more productive with my artwork and also try to get it “out there” in the big wide world. 

As Jim Royle once said in Caroline Aherne’s brilliant TV comedy series ‘The Royle Family’, “Those dishes won’t do themselves, Barb” – of course, this will leave you puzzled if you are reading this outside the UK!!  It just means, if you want to get a job done, get on with it.

So without further ado, here are a couple of progress stage & completed paintings I can now reveal, that were commissioned for Christmas gifts, as I sign off for the time being and get cracking on some new work.
