Small paintings are great for any collector

Here is an example of some small paintings grouped together.   I often hear people say they need a large painting to fill a wall space.  As an example you can see in the photo by grouping small paintings together you can easily fill a pretty large area.   I put up some of my Koi paintings so it tends to read as a theme. But this isn’t necessary, just like home decorating styles the wall  can be eclectic.  I also used all types of frames but sometimes using the same frames pulls the wall together.  Buying small paintings and getting frames for all of them can be expensive but I’ve found these smaller frames are easy to find in your consignment stores, flea markets, yard sales or even thrift stores.

“Humming birds and Morning Glorys” Oil on gallery wrap canvas 8″by 8″ $75.00

This painting is in oil on gallery wrap and still wet so it tends to reflect back into the camera, It looks better then this (really).   I guess I’ll have to wait till the paint dries and re post it.

I like painting birds and I love these small little hummers, especially when they visit my Heavenly Blue Morning Glories,

I have painted so many hummingbirds over the years. Now, I find myself painting them a little different each time.  I guess in hopes of giving them some individuality.

“Bold Lilly” Watercolor on gessoed masonite $50.00 USD 8″ by 8″ (inches)

What a great day! The sun was out it was like 65 degrees, Roo (my grandson) and I went out in the yard and played with the dogs, we sang, threw rocks basked in the winter warmth and ate Mickey Ds. I stayed up till three am last night so I painted a couple of small paintings, this is one of them.

I used to have lilies in my pond but my Koi are large now and they think I’m putting those beautiful flowers in there for them to munch. So now unless I protect them by cordoning off a corner they get devoured in about five minutes.  But I can still have them anytime I want, I just have to get out the paint brushes.  Isn’t it wonderful to have an imagination?
