MINIATURES

Rewarding in many ways.....

keepmeeverwarm.jpg

My first venture in exhibiting Miniatures came in 1995, and that was the beginning of a rather exciting time when my tiny paintings began travelling the world. They've been to countries that I never have.....France, Italy, Israel,and Australia...among other places. They've also been to many different locations in Canada and the United States.
The first juried exhibition I entered was at the DelBello Gallery in Toronto, Ontario....and, much to my surprise, one of my artworks won an award for 'drawing'. It was the little image here, entitled 'Listening to Mozart', inspired by my love for the composer as well as my cat who was named after him!

'BLUE EYES'...c.1998 (pictured above) is mixed media on paper, measuring 5/8" x 1 1/8", shown larger than actual size.

WELCOME BACK...

Baby's back...
having travelled the furthest ever of any of my little works of art. She went to the other side of the world, spending several weeks on display in the Second World Exhibition of Miniature Art, sponsored by the Australian Society of Miniature Art. The show was hosted for the year 2000 by the Hibiscus Gallery in Hobart, Tasmania to coincide with the Olympics being held in Sydney.

And the prodigal son has also returned...from a travelling exhibition which ran from mid-summer to year's end in various locations in Israel. The show, sponsored by the Israel Society of Miniature Art was 'JUBILEE' with the theme 'The Bible: 2000 Years and Beyond'
