So many of my pieces are 11" x 14", 16" x 20", 18" x 18", etc. I have this urge to work really big (but my space cannot accommodate large canvases!) and also tiny. Below are just 2 mini canvases I worked on recently. It was a lot of fun! I'm working on a few mini canvases to offer at the show in Plymouth next month.
Of Norwegian origin, Kristin Vestgård studied for her degree at Falmouth College of Art. She sold all her paintings in her degree show, and Falmouth College of Art purchased the biggest painting for their own collection.
"Originally from California, Georgia moved to Australia in 1984 with her husband to develop a Cotton Farm an hour west of Moree in outback New South Wales. While living in the Bush, Georgia painted as a creative outlet and a way to cope with the isolation and loneliness of a new lifestyle in a strange but fascinating new country."
You can read more about her fascinating life and work here. Below I want to show you only a handful of her pieces and see more of her work on her site. I can thank Facebook for introducing me to many, wonderful people, one of them being Georgia.
Doing my first art show next month is going to be really exciting. It's also a little nerve-wracking. It doesn't help being a perfectionist either. We did a dry run this weekend and although I still have a lot to do, overall I think it will be ok.

I've added a section on the WEDDING INVITATIONS tab to share some kind words I've received from couples. It is the best payback.
