If your space is too tight for large canvases and frames… welcome to the world of miniatures! Fun little paintings that can be hung almost anywhere. These tiny pictures are wonderful hung all by themselves, or grouped together for a display that invites you to stop a while and enjoy the details. The challenges involved in painting these pictures include purchasing magnifying glasses and very small brushes… but the results are worthy of the investment. The standard definition of a miniature is art that covers less than 25 square inches or that can be held in the palm of the hand.
