Tiny paintings

Today I tried my hand at tiny painting, among other mystery painting projects to be revealed at a future date. 

I have become fond of painting 12 x 12 or larger pieces, but generally not over 24 x 24.

As I was picking up some things in my studio looking for my "lost" (or strategically placed) wooden hearts.  I came across some dominoes that I had prepped but not done anything with.  I decided to take my canvas style painting and go mini using some tiny brushes.

I am pleased with the results so far.  Next step is to finish the edges with a paint marker, then clear coat and glue on a metal bail.  Voil√†!  A art necklace for my upcoming show at the Hot a Shops Adt Center in Omaha with the Midwest Lampworkers Guild is completed.

Tomorrow is going to be a busy day as I madly work on some Joyner pieces.

The good news is that though I may have procrastinated, art is bringing me great joy.


Maybe tomorrow I'll show you what I did with these hearts.
