I opened an Etsy shop today to sell the decent-most of my tiny paintings and color sketches. It’s called TheTinyPainting. So far, I’ve listed a number of encaustic 4″x 6″ paintings, and a near stamp-sized hummingbird watercolor. More to come ~ I’d love to know what you think!

Just delivered this commission — father and grandfather of my friend Stephanie. She asked me to paint this as a gift for her father. If anyone can tell what make and model the truck is, I’m curious to know. Cars compuzzle me greatly.
