Broken Laptop and and Mini Watercolors

My laptop is broken. It turns on, lights up, but the screen stays dark. Right now, it's in the shop getting properly diagnosed. The bad news is, there's a good chance that I'll need a new one. The good news is, retrieving my files should be easy, so I won't lose any of my work.
In the mean time, I've been framing miniature watercolours I painted awhile ago. I hate to make the frames, so I splurged on a bunch of frames from Smaller Than Life.

Framed, this painting is 2" wide and 1 1/2" tall.
This is the smallest painting- the watercolor area is less than 3/4" square.
This painting is 1 1/2" wide by 2" tall. The colors in this photograph are a bit washed out- it looks much more cheerful in real life.


  1. Wow so small, you must use a cat's whisker to paint, they are lovely. Your laptop problem sounds like mine, if yours is a Mac. My partner tried to fix it but without any luck:(

  2. Son una verdadera maravilla!!!
    Me encanta tu trabajo!!

  4. I love your paintings! You have a brilliant sense of color. Everything is muted perfectly and they look like antique paintings! Thanks for sharing the link for the frames!

  5. These are just fabulous!!!! Wonderful work, they look so real. :o))

    That happened to my previous laptop, the graphics card had packed up and was unusable. So I had to get all the data transferred off and over to my new one.

  6. Your pictures are lovely! I am hoping to try painting some myself.
