Dollhouse Miniature Paintings

Since I broke my leg last week, I'm having a hard time getting back into the swing of things. I did manage to get two new miniatures listed this week. I'm not sure how many more I'll get done before Christmas. I may have to work at this in the New Year.

You will find the paintings here


I finally got this listed on Ebay. I had this entered in the Flower of the Month exhibition at EBSQ back in September. You can find it here: White Hibiscus As usual a 6" x 4" unframed OSWOA (original small work of art)

Adiemus - First song you hear on this blog

Adiemus, literally translated, means 'we will draw near' "The text in Adiemus is written phonetically, with the words viewed as instrumental sound. The human voice is the oldest instrument and by removing the distraction of lyrics, it is hoped to create a sound that is universal and timeless. Anyway, I love the song, and I love the meaning. It invokes what I feel to be an appropriate concept of blogs bringing people together.

Art for 1000 Wells

November 24 is the date set for Ebay artists to list their art for this worthwhile project. Mousewords (Christine T) is hosting this wonderful event.

The 1000 Wells Project is a part of Blood Water Mission. Blood:Water Mission exists to promote clean blood and clean water efforts in Africa, tangibly reducing the impact of the HIV/AIDS pandemic while addressing the underlying issues of poverty, injustice and oppression. Blood:Water Mission is building clean water wells, supporting medical facilities, and focusing on community and worldview transformation, both here in America and in Africa.

For more on this project and for the Charity auction please visit the 1000 well website:

Look for art on Ebay November 24th to December 4 donating to this cause.

Winter Scene - Water Wheel

I painted this yesterday. You can't see the snowflakes, but everything is covered in snowflakes and "ice crystals". Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, it makes you chilly just thinking about it :)

It's an OSWOA (original small work of art) of course, and is listed here

miniature painting - Dollhouse Art

I managed to get two new miniature paintings done and listed yesterday. One is of my usual nightscapes and one is a daytime landscape. Both are approx 1 1/2" x 2" acrylic.

Northern Lights - Black Ice

It snowed last night. We got up this morning to everything covered in white. It was warm out and melting (not a good thing because of the ice) but it was clear, dark, and beautiful out. You could hear the geese on the lake calling to each other. Probably telling each other to hurry up and get south where it's warmer! The snow won't last. It's melting in the sun already. Just a little reminder that soon the snow will stay and winter will be here.

Black Ice 4" x 6" OSWOA (original small works of art) Oil and Acrylics
You can see it here

Country Christmas Eve.

Last year I painted a lot of Christmas themed paintings and put them on Ebay. Many of them were done in a manner that made them look like vintage postcards. Black and white, with just a hint of colour. Back in the day, that was what people mailed out at Christmas. I've tried to capture that look.

You can see the 4" x 6" painting listed here on Ebay.

Winter Cabin - Dollhouse painting (or miniature)

Winter Cabin (1 3/8" x 2") Acrylic

I went back to the original size. I personally don't like painting smaller. You have to leave out too much detail. This seems to be more of a popular size with the dollhouse people anyway. I'm still painting Northern Lights, although in this painting they are a lot dimmer in the sky. More of a hint of them, than anything else. Black and white (as usual with a hint of blue and yellow) Enjoy.

Listed here on Ebay.

In Flanders Field - Remembrance Day November 11, 2007

Remembrance Day in Canada is November 11. Please take the time on the 11th month, 11th day, at 11:00 in the morning to think of the soldiers both past and present who serve and protect our countries.

In Flanders Fields
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep though poppies grow
In Flanders fields....

Lt. Col. John Macrae -- 1915
