Emotional Blocks No.1-4

{emotional block 1,2,3&4}

Yesterday morning I put the finishing touches on these 4 tiny paintings.  I am super-in-love with the 2" square block size and the the white backgrounds. And I'm smitten with the idea of creating a large collection of these wee pieces.  I have many special little scraps set aside and all of my blocks cut to use in this 1st series of  50 emotional blocks.  As I've mentioned (many times) I really like to work on more than one piece at a time because it allows for give and take between the pieces.  Each block starts out almost the same but develops it's own identity in relation to the other pieces being created. In my head I can see this collection of 50 blocks all the same but different.  Each block saying something small but all together adding up to something big. Ok, enough rambling, it's time to get busy.  Today I'm planning to sand and prep a few more blocks and continue work on the multi panel piece which is coming along s-l-o-w-l-y (this post was just what i needed yesterday)
 I hope your week is off to a fine start and I'll see you back here in a day or two.

These are turning out beautifully. I really like the size and the idea of filling a wall with them. Have a great time painting!

Oh, you're really talking to my love of all things wee! Then add the emotion aspect, and now I'm picking out wall space! Not to mention the beautiful dresses...
