2023 saw me downsizing my art to little manageable paper artworks in-between the larger pieces. As we all know, the economy has been really tough and I was battling through some very difficult months in my personal life (which is why I've been so quiet on my newsletter and blog).
Making these little artworks became such a daily joy. They were made in small moments of time, whilst sitting at the dining room table, all the bits and bobs I needed to make them kept in a small basket. I painted in a variety of mediums - watercolour, gouache, graphite and even casein, so they challenged my knowledge and gave me some enjoyable downtime.
Each day I posted a little artwork to my instagram page, with a small price and ready to be sent over the next few days. I sold almost daily and it became a regular little income. My collectors often came back for a second or third piece (or five!) and would send me photos when they were framed.
So with such a positive response in 2023, Im making these part of my art practise in 2024. I won't post them daily this year, as I have a major exhibition I am working towards and want to make sure my bigger paintings get the attention they need. I will post my 'Little Things' small artworks every few posts on my instagram, so please be sure to follow along there.
