Real Miniature Pet Art by Linda L.Martin


I've actually been working in the Miniature Art format on and off for about 7 years. I started in 2002 painting landscapes in small format of about 4" by 3" before ACEO ( 2.5 x3.5 inches) or Art Trading Card(ATC) sizes became so popular. The smallest I have ever painted and sold is about 1/4" by 1/2 inch. They were little watercolor horses. The smallest oil paintings were about 1" by 2 " landscapes.

These are two from a series of goldfish and canaries I did in the winter of 2007. The largest was 8 by 10 inches. The smallest gold fish was about 1/4Th the size of these. They are matted with painted watercolor paper up to a ATC size so they will fit into a regulation sized sports card PH balanced PVC sleeve.

I have so many paintings right now that I have to number them to keep track of them all. I just got the partially finished inventory back from my assistant this week. So far we have documented 1600 plus paintings not including what has been sold over the last three years.
Anyway a group of us artists on Facebook were discussing mini painting a few weeks ago and I just found these today so I thought I would share them with everyone. Yes, they are available at $20 a piece. I think they will be rematted before I list them .. perhaps on etsy.
