Summer Tanager & Bee

 Summer Tanager & Bee
Small Format Painting - Size: 3½” X 5½”
Watercolor, colored pencil & acrylic paint
Smooth artist’s bristol board
Date of work: August 2014
5”X7” matt with foam core backer included
Sold thank you

After dinning on the luscious nectar of delicate summer flowers, this bee turns to go back to the hive and there is a big red summer tanager.  Oh dear, I hope he will be faster on the get away than the tanager is in the chase.

I like to send my original art works done on paper in matts with foam core backers for extra protection in the mail. These matts are ones that I have leftover from my previous art shows so they are not all new and some have been altered with paint to better match the works. They will fit into standard sized frames or they can be easily removed for your own custom re-matting.  There is no extra charge for the matt; it is free of charge to the buyer as long as they last.

Sold thank you

I love to make tiny little paintings.  Recently I have made a batch of four miniatures that I hope you will enjoy. This is one of the four listed miniature paintings. The image portion was painted on a piece of Strathmore 100% cotton rag drawing paper and is 2” square in size using watercolor, colored pencil and acrylic paint. Then I mounted it to a piece of mat board (2”square) and painted it with black acrylic on front, back and the edges.  I wrote the information on the back and finished the entire piece (front and back) with acrylic varnish. (see photos)

Sold thank you

I love to make tiny little paintings.  Recently I have made a batch of four miniatures that I hope you will enjoy. This one is the smallest.  The image portion was painted on a 90lb piece of heavy weight drawing paper and is only one inch square in size. Then I mounted it to a piece of mat board and painted a matching design all around the edges.  I wrote the information on the back and finished the entire piece (front and back) with acrylic varnish.

I love tiny things.  I don't know why.  But I don't care why.  I just love little original art. Hope you do to.

I wonder if this mountain bluebird has noticed the yellow butterfly that is hiding from him among the flowers.
