This is a "MACRO - MINIATURE" Painting.

Acrylic on Board, 8" x 10" (20.3 cm. x 25.4 cm.) (sold)

This is the forth "Macro-Miniature" (BIG LITTLE) painting I've done. I'm able to complete my ideas in small spaces. I can only do these while I'm not working on commissions. It allows me to achieve a balance. I can keep a little more objectivity about my larger paintings when I go into these. (And I do "GO" into them!)

I have quite a collection of lenses now. Starting at 2.50 up to 700%. The smallest brush I use is an 18/0 script.

... Obsessive? Probably ;) Obsessive is okay with me.

These ( BIG-LITTLE) paintings are becoming more dreamlike. The ideas start with something simple like a cliff and a body of water. The other parts of the painting come to me in dreams or daydreams, or thoughts. Or, they just appear, and I capture them with the little brush, as fast as I can, before they elude me.

Maybe I'm sinking into this little "Microcosmic Universe", (Thank you, R. A. Heinlein!) ... like the "Incredible Shrinking Man", a film from the 1950's.

I do seem to be shrinking sometimes. Metaphorically speaking. My world is very small. If my computer crashes I panic and pray to the electronics Gods as I re-boot. "OH, PLEEEASE DO NOT CUT ME OFF FROM MY WORLD DEAR GOD!!!"

... Is that pathetic?

No, I don't think so ... ;)

    Great man!! Love this one. Great detail for the size! This is probably my favorite of your more recent posts. I'm really into "blue" right now in my own works so that may have something to do with it. I also get more of a sense of hope in this piece than the previous two. Don't know what your take on the piece is but that's how I interpret it. Just beautiful!!
