This painting is actually slightly lighter than it’s shown here. If you are interested in purchasing this great little painting, I would be happy to take a better picture. Also… You should know that you can easily find lots of really nice inexpensive frames with a mat included for these small paintings because 4 by 6 is usually the same size as a standard photograph. A good idea for small paintings is to form a grouping. Sometimes a small painting can’t carry off a larger wall space but several small paintings can. Put together a few paintings to form a small grouping.. say three and space them in a way that is pleasing to you. You’ll be surprised how great they look in the nooks and crannies of your home. I even have several small paintings behind the bathroom door hanging on the wall… you do not see them( till your a captive audience if you know what I mean) closes the door and these paintings never fail to get great comments.
