Oil Paintings in miniature with poetry in miniature (Haiku)


All my posts lately have been photo challenges and I have so enjoyed them and the friends I have met and sites I have visited through joining in. But it is about time to put some paintings up again. On my facebook page (EvAntArtTas…..link button to the right) I have been putting on a daily art post after being nominated for the 3/5 art challenge. My fist day I showed different approaches to flowers/botanical art and my second day I showed some of my carefully rendered miniatures in oil paint. For these miniatures I have written a haiku as I find it somewhat incongruous that miniature art (painting) and the short Haiku verse are tiny creations in their respective fields but both have more rules governing structure than their larger counterparts. Somewhat strange too, that a person who likes bending the rules and extending or overlapping beyond the boxed categories is interested in the tight controls of the forms. But then I was an orderly Maths and Science teacher before I released my creative urges.

Here are the artworks in my exhibition at Gallery Tasmania in Sheffield. The exhibition will be hung until January 31st. Tomorrow (Sunday 12th January from 2 pm) I will be there to discuss the works, and show some of the techniques I used in the watercolours. You can even have a play with the watercolour. I will also have some of my handpainted silk and encaustic jewellery, silk scarf and brooch sets and cards containing original artworks available while I am there.
Apologies that the photos were mostly taken after framing so the quality is not necessarily high. Of course the look better in life. If you wish to know the size of any please message me. They are a mixture of previously shown and new works.
