Miniature Art

I had a short holiday in Spain recently staying near Mijas where they have this fascinating miniature art museum. You view most of the items through magnifying glasses, as the paintings are on grains of rice, pin heads etc.

Obviously I couldn’t photograph those but here are some of their miniature sculptures. You can get an idea of the size by the screw on the bottom right.

Seeing these reminded me of the miniature ACEO paintings I did but have been sitting in a folder! Not as small as the artwork in the museum (ACEO are 2.5 by 3.5 inches) but I am now adding them to my Etsy shop. Many of them were part of an alphabet collection, some of you may remember the blog posts. I sold a few of the original alphabet challenge ones and will replace these with cards or prints.

Here are some, I’m hoping to have listed the whole alphabet by the end of next week.

 

 

 

Bee and Bird Song video 

My Ceanothus is in full bloom at the moment and the bees love it. So thought I’d share a video.

I managed to get some bird song in it too, although the 5th attempt with previous versions having neighbours talking, traffic noise & whistling!

Video is now available to download here  https://www.dreamstime.com/stock-video-bees-blossom-bird-song-video-honey-buzzing-around-ceanothus-bush-full-bloom-s-spring-purple-flowers-birds-video93313828#res18445732

See my Zazzle store for products featuring Ceanothus and bees.

New candle holders and a cute dog!

Spotted this doggy in the window from the bus. He’s so cute I had to share!

Art wise kingfisher’s have been popular and I’ve started some new candle holders. Thought the blue glass would work well with both kingfishers and dragonflies.

Planning on painting some fish on them next.

New Zebra reverse glass painting

Every now and then I feel the need to do something different, as my regular readers know! This time I decided on semi abstract wall art, which you may have seen if you’re following me on Instagram.

Keeping with glass painting I painted this zebra on a windy plain, streaking the glass paint for a semi abstract effect.

What you see is in reverse, having painted on the inside of the glass. It is signed but not in reverse, I couldn’t get my head around that!
