Paradise – a miniature on canvas

Posted by Yelena Shabrova

A kind visitor at the third weekend of recent Open Studios came up with the title, not me. I often draw during SVOS. People like to see how art is created, and whatever I am working on easily becomes a conversation piece. Sometimes I get a free benefit of getting stuff named for me.

The original miniature ($35.00) is available in my online shop as a part of the “Miniatures” collection.

I love how the fall edition of the ATC exchange happens around my Birthday. This year it’s on a day before, so I got four early Birthday gifts:
