This was a lot of fun to do but I admire my friends that do miniatures almost exclusively because it's extremely hard work on the eyes.

 It's tough when you are only given a small size to paint in but it's even tougher, when you are a rather chubby Ted and you're asked to squeeze into such a tiny space!

The actual painting is 2.7 inches by 5 inches. Its photographed here with a double mat.

I think I might frame this one up ready for the studio Tour in October

EDIT: Well, it won't be going to the studio tour because it sold today and will be journeying to its new home in France next week :)



  1. Hello Ona:) How cute he is! Beautiful painted. I love it.

  2. I love it, different and cute is that!

  3. Thank you Carol. I just couldn't resist doing it at this size :)

  4. Oh, I would LOVE to see this little guy in person, Ona! I would be embarassed o show MY first minituee paintings! But yes, painting in miniatre is hard on the eyes. I lst four lines in the vision charts my first few yrs doing them. You have to remember to look up every twenty minutes and focus on far away objects like the horizon. It s a very rewarding way to paint, and addictive! I hope you do more!

  5. Hi Ona,
    "So my challenge is.... can I fit a whole load of emotion into a teeny tiny space???"... I think you did just that. Nice painting. Are you ready to try another 'little one'?
