Small Works

Here are 2 recent paintings,both small, both winter scenes, both Lambertville, NJ:

"Canal in Winter"
5x7 oil on panel


"Lambertville Station in Winter"
5x7 oil on panel

I have a 2 person show with Beatrice Bork coming up at Artists' Gallery in May, and I thought it would be good to have some smaller works in the show. I usually do paint small but 8x10" is my usual limit. I wanted to go a little smaller for this show, so I'm doing a series of 5x7 inch paintings.

I know there's a whole genre of miniature paintings, down to 1 inch or even less... but that's just crazy! For the time being, I think 5x7" will be as small as I go. At this size, I feel I can still paint comfortably, and include a good amount of detail without altering my work habits much. Actually, I'm surprised just how much detail I can get in on these.

You'll hear more about my show in May as the time approaches.

  2. Hi Joe, Came across your blog here whilst surfing around. Really like your work. You use strong bright colours which make your paintings jump off the screen. I see you too like a road leading the viewer into a painting. Fine work. Keep creating, Chris
