Miniature Landscapes of Imagination

landscape-4x10pastel1

I have been pining for arches cold press paper since I used all of my supplies up since I’ve been in Mexico.  I scored a lovely small landscape pad and this is the first painting done with it.  It’s a dreamy landscape with a subtle pale palette.

This size is certainly small at 4×10 inches but it does put one in a mood to let your imagination soar and it makes me stop and think.  At least that is what it is doing for me. I hope to do more like this.  The size reminds me of handling delicate lace.  That is the mood it inspires.  My keyboard is also small.  I guess that makes everything relative.
