While at an art supply store a couple of weeks ago, I picked up a packet of little 3"x3" stretched canvases. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them, but I thought they might fit into my "Daily Doodle" routine. As of today I have completed 4 tiny paintings and just received a box of 36 more tiny canvases yesterday.
I'm loving doing these little paintings first thing in the morning. They keep me loose because they're so small I just CAN'T get caught up in details. And it's expanded my understanding of working in oils. Everything just moves around on the canvas and I have just 3 brushes I'm using!
From foxes to apple blossoms, I'm loving the freedom and satisfaction of completing a piece in a half hour! You can see more at http://canvasworksdesigns.com/lisa-curry-mairs-daily-doodles/.
