Painting a little

3" x 3" acrylic painting

The latest in my series of tiny paintings. They keep me painting when art time is limited.

I decided to use my tiny painting as a study for this larger version. I’m happy to beĀ  finding some painting time after a busy December and January.

I don’t usually name these small paintings, but it’s 8 days until Christmas and I couldn’t resist.

Since many of these will be given as Christmas gifts, I decided to make some that are appropriate for the season.

Once again I am working on these little 3 inch paintings, perfect for gift giving. I really enjoy them because they are quick and give me a break from my larger “serious” paintings. They remind me that painting should be fun. They also work as little studies for large paintings later on. I’ll be focusing on these until Christmas.

This is the Hastings Mill Store – known as Vancouver’s oldest building. You can read all about it’s history here. The park where it is located is my favourite picnic spot in the city. It sits up on a cliff overlooking English Bay, with a beautiful view of downtown and the North Shore mountains.

Study

I was hoping to come up with a catchier title for this painting, but as I worked on it, I had a few problems. I think it’s best to chalk it up to practice and name it accordingly.
