Earlier this year, I embraced a new creative challenge, to make miniature artworks measuring 4x6 inches, every Monday using my beloved dead flowers. Before I dove in, I wondered how I would feel working so small, since I am used to larger spaces and I naturally like to work with space. To my surprise, I loved it and for the next 10 weeks, I created a new mini painting every week. You can see them all here. I combined the painted image with a poetry or verse that I found moving and have collected over the years. ( I am a big poetry nerd!)
As I took them around to markets and shows, I realized that people were quite fond of them and so I decided to turn them into greeting cards, making it easier to spread the love. And that is one of my dearest aspirations with my artwork. That my bit of art, inspiration and beauty can be accessible to anyone who ressonnates with it.
These cards will be up in my etsy shop this week. I'll post a link to them when they are ready. And if you are still here reading this, thank you for taking the time in a world with such possibility and busyness to take this in. xo
