"Red Plum"
3" by 4"
Oil on Gessobord








I don't think I've mastered plums yet.

Need to paint more.

I like the plum painting. Are your paintings really that small? That inspires me to paint--no excuses anymore about not having a big studio or enough money for canvas.

Cheers,

Yep.

They're tiny.

I can pack a box of forty of them in a shoebox and go just about anywhere.

You can turn them anyway you want to get the paint laid in correctly and looking at them upside down or sideway (checking the composition) is a breeze.

I do work on larger panels, but these miniatures have truly stolen my heart.

I like having little jewels of color all over the house.
