mini 37

Miniature #37 "Blue Bird" - April 9 - 15, 2012, 5 x 7 in, mixed media on paper

I thought this might be "the week of no mini." The real world has been encroaching on Tinyland - Bills (capital B), rejection letters (no capital, but plural), and Deadlines (capital and plural) - oh my!  But then I decided that not making a mini would qualify as an "art surrender" (never!).  Mini 37 seems soft an quiet at first - the "fuzzy" appearance is from multiple layers of an aerosol paint, and the paper survived several rounds of sanding in between layers.  The tone strikes me as "quietly aggressive" (is there such a thing?)
