More tiny paintings...

Short version:
Here's 5 little paintings I just finished.
They are now available in my Etsy shop, or contact me directly.

Long version:
I started 10 little paintings, a couple of weeks ago, and have taken photos, as I go. Five of them are Tiny- 2x2 inches
and the other five are 3x3 inches.

They are bright, cheerful, little works of art for
your work or home - they're inexpensive,
collectible, make great gifts and are easy to ship,

It takes a lot of concentration, working on such small canvases, and that's why I enjoy making them. By building up thin layers of paint, letting them dry in between, then adding more colour and detail;
I have retained the original texture of each canvas.
The finished paintings have been allowed to dry
(for at least 24 hours),

before I paint at least 2 coats of glossy, clear finish on them,
which is what I did today, so now these 5 paintings
are very shiny and complete.

The little ladybug painting and purple bird are now available in my Etsy shop.
