Sandy, they're beautiful. I don't know how you manage to work on such a small size! :D One very minor nit... IMHO, the upper leaf does not add anything to your composition...

Lovely mini's. The color really sings. I would frame them with a big mat.

my head would hurt trying to paint so small :eek: ;)

so pretty Sandy :)

in the bigger one you managed to sneak in more colour....makes for more pop against that dark background

Wow Mal! I love them both! I enjoy doing tiny paintings also. It's a fun challenge. The colors in these are wonderful! Great work.

Thanks y'all :D
for the background I use winsor blue(green shade) and winsor violet. the first time I used this combination I did learn to paint it last because a wet brush touching the edge of it does make it run.
