How small can you go?

Approaching Land
2" x 2"
Only time for a mini landscape. Most, if not all, of my landscapes are either from the vantage point of being out at sea looking back at land or vice versa. Since there's a body of water involved, is it more appropriate that they're labeled a seascape? Hmmmm........

The Three of Us

8" x 8", oil on canvas

A little bit of glare on this one... I limited myself to 1 hour so that I would force myself to make quick decisions and not get bogged down pushing the paint around and around.

No painting today

No painting today, so I thought I'd post one of my sketches, an idea actually inspired by fellow blogger Sandra Galda. A few years ago, before I took my first painting class, I decided to take a drawing class to sharpen up those skills before ever laying paint to canvas, and this little produce ink drawing is one of the first from that class.
I've been busy submitting paintings for various local exhibits, 20 total.... we'll see what happens. Thank you to a new collector who recently purchased one of my paintings, Overboard .
