I've been having fun painting mini canvases for the Daily Surf Art blog. There is something about miniatures that I've always been drawn to. Especially as a child I loved playing with little cars, little toy people, building little village sandcastles inhabited by poor critters I found in the yard (sorry Miss. Caterpillar, sorry Mr. Frog and Baby Gartersnake!), and cooking little imaginary potions. My favorite cartoons were The Smurfs and The Littles! So naturally, here I am painting a visual story about Little Blue...
Little Blue Goes Surfing... "Go Blue, toes to the nose.... WooHOooooo!!!!!..."
Just for fun, if you have a story you would like to write for this series, I would love to hear it. Keep it short and post in the comments below.
Clockwise, they're titled: Little Blue Paradise (SOLD), Little Blue Line-Up (SOLD), Little Blue Deep (SOLD), and Little Blue Rider.
This series of oil paintings on 5"x7" canvas are available here for $70 each. They're painted around the sides, so there is no need to frame them, and each comes ready to hang with a wire on the back.

oh I do love the way these tell a story in my mind!ReplyDelete
I love the interplay between discovering on your own and playing with the community...Seems like such a great metaphor for how we live our lives
