little gems

The small paintings we do are often referred to as little gems. Whether they are or are not is up to you to decide. Here are three small paintings I did for the annual christmas open house. All are 8x10 and done in the studio looking at the computer for reference, but painted in the same way I would paint something outside. They are loose and I like 'em that way. If I could pull off this feel on a larger scale I would be happy. There is something about doing small quick works with little fussing that can be quite satisfying. JoeBob says check it out.
