Thanks to my studio mate @sandrafettingis for capturing my true essence as an artist, hunched over with my magnifying headset on. When I first decided to start hand painting these tiny figures it was a very frustrating experience. I struggled to find small enough brushes and had a hard time steadying my hands. Now it has become my favorite part of my artistic practice. It slows me down both physically as I have to time my breathing along with my brush strokes and mentally as I focus solely on what’s in my hands. When you work this small it’s not about total accuracy but more hinting at the detail as the viewers eyes fill in the space between. What’s the thing you’ve struggled with the most in your artist practice?
A tomato. Again I had a challenge making the background exactly the right color in my photo editor (it is slightly more peach in real life), but overall it is a very close photo. Looking forward to the next mini!

Look familiar? It was mentioned at the last show I was in that maybe I could combine skiers and my night scenes. So this little mini is the beginning of that. I have a few more ideas coming soon!
