Little Fields of Gold

Hello dear readers!
I have begun painting again!  It's like a refreshment for my soul, let me tell you!  We are pretty much settled into our new home, my art room, while not set up quite right, is unpacked, and my brushes are getting a little action!

Now, let me introduce you to one of my newest little guys!   “Little Fields of Gold” is a charming little oil painting with yellow and golden fields in the foreground, layers of warm sky and clouds, and dots of trees and shrubs. The brush strokes and the thickness of the paint (“impasto”) to add character, visual direction, and a feeling of lovely texture to this little painting.

I love the tiny size! This little guy measures 4×4 inches, which, for some reason, allows me to get out of my head and just paint. I had fun playing around with the color pallet; warm teal, gold, blue, gray. The canvas is 1.5 inches wide (edge) and is able to stand on it's own and it is very easy to hang. 

So happy, so cute, so bold and brash for such a small thing! 
You can find this baby in my shop or on my new portfolio website!   Please, go on over there and see what I've been working on!

I adore these mini paintings. I see two on your etsy site, are there others?
