Objects in paintings are generally smaller than in real life, but here we go one step further and make paintings smaller than the norm, properly called miniatures or small works depending on just how small they are. This one is 4/1/4 by 3 1/2 inches, or just about the size you are likely viewing it on screen, and so is a miniature. The subject is a barn on Heggenes Road, which winds through rural south Whidbey Island. This work, called 'Whidbey Barn' is the first of several miniatures that I plan to paint and enter in a local Miniatures Show, so I cannot commit them for sale just now. These little guys are just plain fun to do, so my next few entries will be small. this work has been SOLD at the Edmonds Art Festival show in June, 2010 .
