Small Paintings I Wish Were Big

February 23, 2012

Elements 16, Acrylic and Collage on Cradled Panel, 8x8"

Haiku 11, Acrylic on Cradled Panel, 8x8"

Haiku 63, Acrylic on Cradled Panel, 8x8"

But do I wish it enough to paint them in a larger format? They are good studies, should I decide to do it. I believe all of these are sold, so I’d have to use the pictures as a reference. (Note: I guess I really do love black.)

No further development yet on the works in progress in the studio. They are still at the looking stage.

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Haiku 63! and the first one – — WOW!
    Great choices for larger work (IMHO)

    These make quite an impact, that first one especially, love the layers of text under all that paint. Be interesting to see them on a larger scale

    I know exactly what you mean Martha. I like big – 30×30. I feel you can ‘see’ the great detail in the painting better and appreciate the sensuousness of the colour. I love these black and whites.

      Sherrill, I’ve realized that I love that size, and that a painting doesn’t have to be larger than that for impact. Thanks – glad you like these ideas.

    I love them all. But the top -one is really great.

      Thank you, Eric! Nice to see you pop in here. Reminds me that I need to see what you’ve been doing lately.

    There is SO MUCH to Haiku 63 ! I love them all, but that one grabs me, for some reason. I can see exactly why you’d consider enlarging them into a big statement. Sometimes a whisper is appropriate; sometimes you just wanna scream. Or at least raise your voice… ๐Ÿ™‚
