Miniature Art

I had a short holiday in Spain recently staying near Mijas where they have this fascinating miniature art museum. You view most of the items through magnifying glasses, as the paintings are on grains of rice, pin heads etc.

Obviously I couldn’t photograph those but here are some of their miniature sculptures. You can get an idea of the size by the screw on the bottom right.

Seeing these reminded me of the miniature ACEO paintings I did but have been sitting in a folder! Not as small as the artwork in the museum (ACEO are 2.5 by 3.5 inches). Many of them were part of an alphabet collection, some of you may remember the blog posts. I sold a few of the original alphabet challenge ones and will replace these with cards or prints.

Here are some, I’m hoping to have listed the whole alphabet by the end of next week.
