Miniature acrylic painting

Miniature acrylic painting

Art doesn’t have to be big, expensive, in a museum or in a big art collection. As I see things, the small creative expressions in my life are the most interesting part for me. Not the big projects, but a tiny though that finds it’s way into my fingers and out to the canvas. The series of the “Lucky squares” is something I started just because I liked the format. I bought these small canvases in one of my visits to Berlin, and they lay here for a long time before they became useful. I paint on them without too much planning, I just catch one visual idea and paint. The tiny size adds magic to it, the painting becomes an object – holdable… The name “Lucky squares” came from a friend of mine, who reacted to these paintings like they were a precious finding. She told me that when she was a child, there was a common belief that if you find a square stone it will bring you luck. So I called these tiny art pieces “Lucky squares”. Their size is 2 inches square, (5 cm square), originally painted by me, covered with glossy varnish, signed. Available at my Etsy shop.
