Breakfast at 1886


6x6 oil on panel
$100 + $11 s/h - sold

A view through the window onto the patio of the 1886 Cafe and Bakery which is part of the Driskill Hotel.

Question for the other painters out there.... do you all spend as much time on these little paintings as you could/would on a larger piece? I find that no matter the size of panel, the work takes about the same time. Well, up to a certain size... like maybe 11x14. And given that I have about 3 1/2 hours each day to do this without interruption, you can guess that I am lucky to get one a day painted.

Yes, I've found that I can spend as much time on a 5 x 7 as an 11 x 14 (just smaller brushes and smaller brushstrokes.) But it takes as much time to compose, add details, etc. Smaller is not necessarily faster!

Good job on this painting!

yes- sometimes they do take as long or longer than larger paintings....and sometimes either large or small just "falls off the brush" - I love it when that happens- wish they could all be that way!

I DO ENJOY these pieces you have been doing - they are delightful gems!!
