Acrylic Mini Painting

Joan Bohls is an artist friend from Bastrop.  Once in a while, we end up in Angel Fire at the same time.  We try to get together and paint.  (We did that today!)

A couple of days ago we were invited to a get together for Joan's birthday.   I have some mini canvases with me and thought it would be fun to paint an Angel Fire scene on one for a small gift.  I painted with acrylics while sitting on the porch/deck.  Nice.

Angel Fire aspens, 2 x 2 inches in acrylics.

The painting, larger than in real life:



Here is a post from 2010 when Joan and I painted here in Angel Fire:

Lovely tiny painting!!! I'm glad you and your friend were able to get together and paint.

Joan, thank you so much. Painting that small is a different challenge for sure.

We had a good time painting. As you know, it inspires and gets you motivated.

I started to buy some mini canvases yesterday. Wished I had. Your little painting is great.

Bag Blog,thanks. I think I got them as an add on from Dick Blick a couple of years ago. This is only the second one I've painted. Fun. You need to get some.
