This painting is 8 x 10. I like to think that small paintings are 8 x 10 and under. Many artists paint even smaller works–those that are called miniature are often 2- 1/2 ” x 3- 3/8″. I have even seen tiny works 1-1/4″ x 1-1/4″ by artist Karen Libecap in her book “The Big Book of Tiny Art.” I don’t think that I could ever work that small, but I am experimenting with 5×7″ sizes. You can see a few of my 5 x7″ paintings by looking at my animal category in my on line art gallery Dailypaint works. Click here to go see.
