This is lovely Valerie :) Are you familiar with the Royal Society of Miniature Painters? I came across it today and see they have a couple of exhibitions which they invite entries for :)
Aha, I've just been looking back through your blog and came across your post about said exhibition last year :D Congratulations on having your works accepted, very well deserved!
Just amazing Valerie. Are you painting under a magnifier? You've got to be!That Rooster is the spitting image of my gorgeous Conan.
Hi Chloe, yes it was a great honour to have my work accepted and exciting to see the work on show.Jeri, yes reading glasses and magnifiers all needed now sadly!
Val, this new miniature painting is exquisite. Lots of power in that portrait, with its splendid colors, too.I did paint a quick little Valentine card yesterday, and thought to myself...why do I rush this process? Now, seeing your post, I've told myself to take out those paints and brushes and papers again, and be patient.This could mean setting aside some knitting!I very much enjoyed seeing your interview with Susan. The first picture you show of her work has, to my eye, a very Mary Cassatt atmosphere. I do mean that as praise.xo
Beautiful... love the tiny details, and it IS quite a detailed piece!
Delightful was the first word that came to my mind ... essence of chook in a 3" pot ... I love it!
Just beautiful, it made me thinkof Jeri Landers rooster and I see she thought so too. :) Both of you are amazing artists and illustrators.I also enjoyed your post on Sue Shanhan, another very talented artist .
Do you know,there looks to be a great satisfaction in your lovely painting. They are lovely to look at, I hope you have success with this one too 😊
Small, delicate and beautiful; a three inch marvel. I think you must have been a jeweller in a past life Valerie.
Frances, Valerianna and Annie, Thanks as ever, for all you lovely comments and for visiting my blog.
Karen, nice to see you here again, I am a great fan of Jeri Landers.Julie, I saw your gorgeous gift bags in John Lewis! Well done, they looked great.Kate, I would have loved to have been a jeweller and always admired the work of the graduates from my college. Nice to see you here again, thanks for visiting.
I've always loved these tiny works of art...well done! Patience and a steady hand indeed!
