The small paintings we do are often referred to as little gems. Whether they are or are not is up to you to decide. Here are three small paintings I did for the annual christmas open house. All are 8×10 and done in the studio looking at the computer for reference, but painted in the same way I would paint something outside. They are loose and I like ’em that way. If I could pull off this feel on a larger scale I would be happy. There is something about doing small quick works with little fussing that can be quite satisfying. JoeBob says check it out.
