6 Reasons To Love Small Paintings

Drizzly day, remembered
after a walk on Monday
from Willowbrook Farm,
to Castor Hanglands.
5" x 7"


I love a small painting. They fill me with joy, complete within themselves but giving a hint of treasures to be found elsewhere.

A tiny painting is like a haiku, much said in few words.

  1. Slips effortlessly into your home.
  2. Entry level for collecting.
  3. You can move it around without making major changes.
  4. Ideal for a gift. "I'd just like a teeny painting for my birthday". "A little something I bought you because you're my best friend."
  5. Easy to post.
  6. Satisfying to hold in your hand, pick up, put down, look at and cherish.
