TGIF Challenge - Minimalize Art




There is something intriguing about art that is small....atcs, inchies, twinchies, microscope slide pieces. I am always amazed at how much detail can be incorporated on a small canvas. I created these three circus-tent shaped atcs as a triptych to send to a partner for a personal trade. This is my submission for this week's TGIF challenge.

I love small things. I have been advised that I should paint big, but somehow, I keep going back to small. Maybe someday I will try big, but I still think there are wonderful things in small.

And you are so creative. Wonderful images across the board.

These are so cute and the shape is perfect...like being under the big top. Minimalize art...I get the concept of small art but I hate the idea of "minimalize" used in relation to art...I like sweeping and expressive and majestic! I'm just being "Fridaylicsious!!" lol!!

Laura said...

Fun, Fun, Fun!...like a three ring circus! I had the privilege of seeing Barnum & Baily Circus this summer. It was like being a child again, pure joy! Marvelous trade!

I just can't get over how prolific you are! I love these circus tents. My local ATC group had a circus theme this month, but I was too busy to make any...... but I wish that I had thought of tents.......
