"Saratoga Fields, 6 x 6, oil on wood
Nine small paintings and counting! I don't know when it happened but the Christmas season is now the season of miniature paintings. The galleries want to offer their clients a broad range of moderately priced artwork for the holiday buying season hence the current rash of "little paintings" everywhere. I always paint small studies anyway to determine if I want to spend the time and effort on a larger version. I actually would have kept a few of these minis for larger pieces but they had to get to the gallery. You can see these paintings and a lot more at Sorelle Gallery in Albany. The show opens Saturday so stop by if you are in town!
