As the spring rain trickled down today, and I reflected on the sweet weekend spent working in my garden, I worked a bit more on my latest miniature (3.5 x 2.5") painting - ACEO. This tiny painting (the same size as a Baseball card) depicts a wee little Chipmunk nestled among the leaf liter of a forest floor. I am inspired to capture the unfolding of Spring as seen from the perspective of this small woodland creature. I love how the moss in our New England woods, bursts into emerald green the moment the snow recedes in Spring. I'll save the process of building in layers of soft Chipmunk fur for the very last step because its my favorite part and is like the "desert" for my creative banquet.
