Anyway, it will be April 29 & 30th and I am busy, busy, busy making a whole lotta stuff.
Today I'll share some little paintings.

I started painting bees about 6 weeks ago and have already sold three paintings, so I thought I'd keep with the bees and nature theme.
But I also wanted to play with limited color palettes and I love blue butterflies.

I like to make small paintings for this type of show. For one thing, I don't really have wall space. I have a big window - which is great - but even if it was wall, it's concrete. No nails. Small paintings can go on table easels and they look nice among the other items.

Small paintings are also less expensive. Everyone loves to oooh and ahhh at the big paintings, but people rarely buy them. They just don't have the money. So small paintings are a great way for people to buy original art at a price they can afford.
I'm very pleased with this series. The leaves are quite calming to paint. It's like art meditation.
Thanks so much for stopping in.
I hope the flowers are blooming where you are!
