A New Batch of Mini Pastels

'Golden Fields' 2.5 x 3.5 " pastel
My project this week is to paint some mini paintings. Some call them aceo or Artist Trading Cards. I just call them minis and I love to paint them! You can easily get nice frames for them now or mat them to give them a bigger presence. I like them because it is a great way to distill my subject and simplify. I use my regular pastels and cut up scrap paper into 2.5 x 3.5 scraps. I am posting them all in a facebook album this week. I'll share the link when I upload today's paintings.

Love the minis. When you have so many paintings in your head, minis are a saving grace. Your palette and sense of light is wonderful, Karen.
