Happy Chap finished.


Happy Chap is finished, but I'm really not sure whether to sell him or not. I rarely do any artwork to exhibit anymore, and so my supply is rapidly depleting. I really don't have the patience to put the weeks of time I used to, into producing the standard of work required for miniature art exhibitions, preferring to churn out quicker artworks every couple of days - much more fun!! Of course, that may change at any given time. That's the beauty of art - you can always move in different directions depending on your mood and the opportunities for learning never end.

Your chap is gorgeous! And I know just what you mean - I struggle with the same balance - build expensive inventory vs. crank out affordable art to list on ebay. Please let me know the secret when you figure it out!

This is absolutely beautiful! Does the rule of 1/6 scale also apply to the miniature competition in Australia? It's so difficult for me to achieve that.

No, the Australian Miniature Art Society have not adopted that rule thank God, they just specify that it has to be in the spirit of miniaturisation and I'm still not convinced that this would comply to that so still may pop it on ebay. It must be very hard to stick to that rule.

He turned out so delightful Karen! That 1/6 rule is actually why I have hesitated with the miniature shows etc. Plus, I just want to stay loose and fun with my work, not have to conform to a standard. On the other hand, having our small work in shows does add credibility...tough choices! Meanwhile, you are making people happy with your art and that's what its all about, in my opinion!
great work Karen!

I totally agree with you Mel and you make so many people happy with your artwork. In the end, that is so much more rewarding than winning an award or two.
