When I first moved to Atlanta, my mom began volunteering for an organization promoting miniature art. Every summer the group sponosred a national exhibit featuring these tiny works – paintings, drawings, prints of people, landscapes and still lifes. Everything had to be less than 4″ and many were small as a postage stamp.
Mom convinced me to enter a few pieces for the show. These four pieces, 3×4″ or smaller were accepted in the show. Growing up, most of my works were drawings leaning toward realism and these pieces are an adequate timecapsule for that time period. I still enjoy drawing like this. Its relaxing to sit at the end of the day and shade with pencil. I might go home tonight and do exactly that!
