Small paintings can be arranged in a frame to create a bigger painting - here is something I put together for a couple of art lovers (each barn painting is 8 x 8 inches):
Small painting can also be used to complement bigger pieces, adding nuances and interest.
Many people wonder how to hang small paintings. Here are some ideas.
Small 6x6 paintings look great in a floater frame, and come ready to hang in a small space, or with other 6x6 paintings, covering a bigger wall.
Another option is to choose a number of small paintings and frame them together. In this way you effectively create your own painting. Here are four 6x6 paintings, framed together in a 12 x 12 floating frame - check Daily Paintworks for my available artwork.
My oldest daughter came from school:
“Mom, we talked about art in the literature class. The teacher asked why people make art.”
“What did you say?”
“I said that I did not know.”
I was surprised: it is so obvious. But then how should one describe a new color that the viewer has never noticed?
Why do I make art? As Tagore says:
I have had my invitation to this world’s festival, and thus my life has been blessed. My eyes have seen and my ears have heard.
It was my part at this feast to play upon my instrument.
(Rabindranath Tagore, Gitanjali, 16)
