Acrylic on Canvas
I am in the process of doing a commission for an upcoming Yukon Government Conference in Whitehorse in July. I need to complete 10 small paintings that will be used as gifts for the Ministers attending.
Over the years I have painted many small paintings and they are what I call my bread and butter because I sell a lot of them and they actually do make me a fair bit of income - they sell very well and it adds up quickly.
My hundred paintings in a 100 days were mostly
6x8, 5x7 and a few 8x10's and there are under 10 left.
Some artists feel that doing really small work is a waste of time but I really love these small paintings. When my children were little it was all I had time for and they kept me in practice and most importantly they kept me painting. Another great use for small paintings is for reference for larger works. The really nice small ones are thumbnails for these larger works and the composition is worked out for you.
Lastly they are small originals and very affordable for everyone.
