"Little Women"

4 x 4"
oil on masonite

I've had nothing but frustrating days with my paints - so I've decided to put my ambitions of doing larger work aside, for a while, and do some small pieces.

I find it interesting how the tilt of the left hand frame makes me want to reach into the painting and straighten it.

An apology to someone who left a comment - I accidentally deleted it. The question was, with larger paintings, do I use a larger brush, approach it differently - I would if these paintings were in the 2-4 foot range, but I stay with 9-14" with most and do everything much the same as the very small pieces. I don't use tiny brushes - that would cause me to nit pick and I try not to do that. I use flat brushes, anywhere from 1/2" - 1" wide for all paintings. When I have the room to do big work, I'm sure that will change.

These paintings of museums are very interesting and very unusual.
