Does Size Affect the Message?


Does Large mean Great?

. . . Small mean Secondary?

Is Appreciation affected by Size?

Miniature Art is something I really enjoy.  It is intimate  . . Draws you in . . .Invites close inspection. 

But does it celebrate "Greatness"?  Convey the Message??

For me it does, I am drawn to little things, what about you?
On the Watch - 1.75 x 4 inches. - $95
My drawing On the Watch of the Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep had 2 goals: project the quiet majesty of the this male sheep as he stands watch;  And do this with one of my tiniest drawing ever!!

I was very lucky to get my shots of this bighorn sheep.  We were heading back to the coast in September after camping at Adams Lake.  As we came down throught the mountains at Spencer's Bridge we saw a small herd of the bighorn sheep near the road.  This herd was a group of transplanted Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep.   A real find for me!!

Lots is happening: 
I have taken on the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge with a fellow blogger, Sea Dean.  She has set up a great site for artists to post their pictures and anyone can vote on their favourites.   I am a little behind, starting on Day 8 but getting into the swing.   You have 3 votes for each day's paintings so click over and start voting.  I have also put a page on my blog for the challenge pictures, you will see it on my header.

Also, Artists, my all day Marketing Workshop is set for Sunday, February 22, 2015, 10-3pm.  Build your Marketing Skills to become an Independent Artist on your terms.  See my Marketing Page for more Marketing information and Workshop Registration. Only 3 spots left.

A lot of work in such a small space, we have a herd of these not far from where we live

Lucky. Needless to say we don't see them here on the coast. It was very exciting for us to see them in a place where I could take some pictures.
