This little guy is inspired from a photograph I took in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1996. I painted this piece for the Matzke Fine Art Gallery 21st Annual "Honey, I Shrunk the Art" show that I have participated in from the very beginning. It is a fun group show of miniature works by Northwest artists. The show opens Saturday November 19th 4:30-8:30pm and runs through January 28th, 2012! If you haven't been to Karla's gallery yet, get in the car for a lovely drive to a beautiful destination.
