This winter I discovered the pleasures of working very small. I was going through one of those periods when there was never enough time to get everything done. I was frustrated with the constant stop and go of working on larger studio pieces and I felt the paintings were suffering by the on again off again routine they were submitted to. Days would go by without painting. Since I couldn’t change the commitments I had I decided to find a way to paint and complete a painting when only very short work time was available to me. The solution was the mini, 6x8 inch painting. To make things go even faster I chose to do a series of the same scene.
