New work

first signs of spring, 4 x 4 mixed media on birch panel
The 4" x 4" wood panel is my favorite size to work on.  The small surface area is not at all intimidating, and I can casually work on the painting over the course of a few days.  Anything larger than 8" x 10", and I'm toiling over every little mark and decision. 

One of my goals for this year is to work on larger pieces, but I don't intend on moving away from the smaller compositions any time soon.  I enjoy creating original pieces of art that are easily accessible and affordable.  Whenever I sell one of my works, it's so rewarding to know that someone's personal art collection has just increased by one.

loving these pieces. totally know what you mean re working small. i too feel more free with small and paper, though often enough some of the things i'm trying really need more space. it's a definite shift.
looking forward to seeing some bigger pieces.
