This is another one of those juxtapositions of scale that I am fond of. The pencil is in fact standing in a miniature plastic jug, presumably from a dollie's tea-set!

Small Hand

Small Hand
Oil on linen on MDF
110x100mm

Some years ago I painted a whole series of paintings of my own hands. You can see a couple of of them here http://paulhutchinson.co.nz/Hands/hands.htm  They started out as life sized paintings and ended up on a rather grand and larger than life scale.  It's an interesting experience revisiting old subject matter. This time around my hand is tiny. But it's not frozen....

Snowpeas

Snowpeas

This was the last painting I did last year.  I was interrupted before I was quite finished and I never got back to it so they are unfinished snow peas now. Nothing is ever finished...
