Visit my new online shop:

I am working on a new series of paintings...on playing cards. Tiny landscapes and still lifes in oil. So far I think there are 20 or so available in my shop and I'll be posting them regularly. They sell for $25 each.

I began these miniatures in response to the current economy, but have really been engaged working on them! Even though the cards are small, there's a lot of room for detail and expression.

I'm using a fairly large brush, a #14 filbert, but am also using my palette knife to "urge" the paint into small spaces. By painting on the back of the card, I can work with the patterns of the card, letting it show through the layers of paint in some places.

Take a look at my shop, and share it with friends if you like too.
