Mini Masterpieces

I've been working on some tiny paintings: 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches.

The Swirl
2.5 x 3.5
acrylic on canvas

. My favorite shape has always been a swirl. This one turned out kind of cosmic.

The Tulip

2.5 x 3.5

acrylic on canvas

This one is based on a sketch I did many years ago. I guess I've been drawing these same two shapes, the tulip and the swirl, as long as I can remember. What's that about?

The image above is a hand-carved stamp I made using a linoleum block. I then aged and stamped a blank notebook to create a cool pirate journal.
