New tiny paintings

Today I am happy to share some new paintings with you.


Here is my newest mixed media painting, which I am so excited about. I finally finished this piece yesterday. Ever since I did the pineapple painting, I've wanted to create more bright neon pieces for summer. I was nervous about doing flamingos because the neck is long, curvy and thin. I was worried I wouldn't be able to cut the paper/fabric exactly right and the neck would look all choppy. Anyways, I am so glad I just went with it and attempted the piece because it turned out great. I did struggle with the background a little, but then I decided to go for a sunset appearance fading into emerald water.

  Flower Bouquet- 11x14

I finished the flower bouquet painting last month, but forgot to post it. I love the contrast of the different purples with the black. I normally don't use a lot of black in my art because I like my art to be bright and fun. However, I feel the black really compliments the purple and mint colors. I think I might experiment more with black in the future to create some contrasty pieces.

So here is a little sneak peek - I've been trying to create a tiny painting collection because I hope to eventually open an Etsy shop. I would love to hear any feedback! Please tell me your favorite pieces and what you would like to see more of! It would be super helpful.
