Still Life #80  12"x12"  gouache on oriental paper

I have been invited to show work in the Miniatures and More exhibition at the Albuquerque Museum.  The maximum size is 324 square inches including frame.  I didn't know if I could accomplish my new work in this size limitation?  After all we are always in love with the current project we are working on, and of course I wanted to show my new still life.  Well I did it, here it is!  I am very excited, and will do more in this smaller size.  Size is important to our work.  And I am planning a project of a piece that will be 24"x36".  It will be oil on panel.  The panel I ordered from Danial Smith, this will allow the graduation to be longer and maybe very interesting?  I have one more project before I can begin the painting in oil. 

A Small Stone
The morning is quiet
One bird sings
All else is sleeping
