3" x 3" paintings

3″ x 3″ paintings

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.

Tiny Paintings 3″ x 3″

‘Tis the season again for tiny paintings. It’s fun to do these 3″ x 3″ canvases any time, but they are very handy to have around during the Christmas season. In the next few weeks I will be focused on cranking out lots of these. If you think anyone on your Christmas list might like one, please get in touch!

Cat Nap Acrylic Painting

Cat Nap 3" x 3"

As I painted this little cat, I kept thinking that I need to put more animals into my artwork. When I was younger, I drew only animals – cats and horses were my favourites. Below you’ll see a glimpse into my sketchbook from 1998. That seems like such a long time ago, yet I can still remember working on these drawings. Somehow my passion for filling up sketchbooks with animals has evolved into my obsession with capturing beautiful little scenes around me. If, in 13 years, I look back on the artwork I did today, I wonder what I will think. I wonder where it will take me?

When I work on tiny paintings, I often do 2 or 3 at the same time. I have found that there is a large time investment for one, but to do an additional one or two does not add that much time to the process. For instance, if 1 tiny painting takes 2 hours to complete, I can probably finish a set of 3 in 2.5 to 3 hours. Of course, each painting does not come out the same. They share the same general colours and composition, but I try not to be too picky about making all the details match. Each one is truly an original. Can you spot the differences?

East Side of the Road & West Side of the Road, 4" x 6"

These are two paintings of the same road on Westham Island, near Delta, BC. One is a view of east side and the other is the west. They are little (4″ x 6″) and I finished both in one day. My goal was that each one would work on it’s own, or they could be displayed together –  as sort of a diptych. I love to paint old buildings, power poles and power lines, so I had a lot of fun with these paintings.
