Miniature Paintings Are Better In Person!

WOW! That’s Unbelievable!

After 18 years of displaying our miniature paintings one would think we’d tire of doing it.  How far from the truth.  Can one ever tire of watching kids head for the Christmas tree on Christmas morning?  We see that same fascination and delight each time we display our work to the public.  What fun to watch them grab a magnifier and say “wow! … That’s Unbelievable!”

This year marks our 14th appearance at the Nation’s oldest wildlife art festival.  It’s the 45th Annual Waterfowl Festival this year and once again, November 13th-15th, crowds will be flocking to Easton, MD to experience the charm of the city, the hospitality of the people and the gorgeous surroundings.  It’s all better in person!  Funny how in this digital age we tend to forget how much better art is in person too!

This is even more true for miniatures.  In person is the only way you can instantly see the difference: their diminutive charm that dazzles like jewels, the enchantment of looking really close with a magnifying glass and the icing on the cake … we’re there to talk with you too!

No flipping through pages of a book or scrolling pages on a website.  The paintings are right in front of you to touch and hold and best of all, to take home with you to enjoy forever.
