oil on gessoed board
Sept 30, 06
Update: I have now been offered a nice $2 Canadian coin with a golden polar bear on it which I'm very tempted by, and , definately winning in the originality and humour stakes, a baby molar tooth with a large filling snatched from the tooth fairy ten years ago.

This is one of my "postage stamp" paintings.
I tend to paint these tiny ones when I am lacking in confidence. I don't paint them on scraps or offcuts. I go and cut one of my bigger boards up into small pieces and carefully bevel the edges and round the corners slightly. I paint all the edges when I'm doing the painting so that the painting is a little physical object, rather than just a two dimentional image on the surface.
