Then I zoom out and I see this project in the context ofall the art I’ve ever made, and all I have yet to imagine.
It’s a place on a timeline, and that line spirals round.
These 15 pieces are the first of a multi-part series: “Inner Space”
In this iteration I’m zooming in.
Next look at these thoughts will be both from afar and close up.
The micro & the macro.
There’s so much more yet to come,
I’m so excited to show you how this develops!
All these paintings, inclusive of their mounts, measure just a smidge over 5 inches square.
I think their magic is in the tiny details.
You can become lost in these itsy-small worlds.
All of these one-off art cards are available in my Etsy Store from today. International shipping is available — catch ’em while you can!

When you hop onto my mailing list I’ll send you my ebook all about color. Your email is utterly safe to me. I’ll sing it to sleep when it lands with me, and bring it tea and a bun if it wakes up.
(I also like to believe it doesn’t stop there, it keeps going in both directions beyond our abilities to measure. It keeps on going forever – turtles all the way down – as the saying goes. But that’s not for now.)
Before I fall down another rabbit hole of ponderings, I have art to make:
It begins here with this series of miniature abstract paintings, which resulted from time spent playing with these ideas.
We talk about looking at the overview, the ‘bigger picture’. One purpose of art is to flip reality. So this time go smaller. To tiny things.
Each little painting offers an interpretation to the viewer, it can be any scale, a world zoomed in or out?
A landscape or a microscopic view. Or both.
Perhaps this is a fractal universe where we live, perhaps not. I like to explore these ideas without attaching to any. These thoughts fuel the desire to build patterns out of patterns.
This first Series is titled Inner Space and consists of 15 small watercolor & collage paintings mounted as art cards, and will be up in my Etsy shop in October. Hop on my mailing list to be first to know more!
