New Painting

It's been a while since my last post! I have been working on various miniatures for the past few weeks, but this painting is one of my favorite. It's oil on wood, about 2" tall. It's a copy of Van Gogh's Still Life with Open Bible.

This is going to be difficult to frame. It was sort of an impulsive painting, so I forgot to allow room around the edge for the frame to hide. There's plenty of room on the sides, and enough on the bottom edge, but I'm worried about the top. Please notice the warning along the left side. My mom jokes that "wet paint" is my signature.


  1. I have been following your blog for a while.. I love your ability to work in such tiny detail... And as for this painting.. WOW.. I love it... As for framing.. Maybe you could fix it to be on an easel and be like it is just been finished and awaiting to dry..
    I love the wet paint signature also..
    Keep up the great work.
