POAC Winter Exhibit: Miniatures

The Winter Exhibit is divided into three distinct categories: Fiber which you can view in yesterday's post, Miniatures which are not to exceed 10" x 10" in size, and "Beyond Form" or abstract. Today I share my favorites from the Miniature category, starting with this lovely watercolor leaf by Karen Robinson. I'm sure I don't have to tell you why it caught my attention.

Then there's the metal work of Denys Knight, whose work continues to captivate me (I own one of her pieces). Last year she had moved to adding large glass beads from costume jewelry to her pieces, few of which resonated with me. But this grouping captured my imagination once more with the metal trees added on top of undulating backgrounds and her flame technique.

I like the "Sampler" which had richer colors than I think the photo shows. And more tree scenes! Click on any photo to see detail and read info on gallery cards.

As an aside, this is my view today - another storm that will last all day and perhaps leave as much as ten inches of snow in its wake. Frankly, I like it better than the rain earlier in the week . . .

These are lovely. You seem to reside in a creative corner of Idaho. I popped back to look at the one you purchased too.

You also really seem to be getting winter. Our one day of snow in December has been it so far. Damp, chilly but no more snow here.

Yes, Hilary, creativity abounds here! Mary, Denys is SOOO prolific and to be honest, there's hardly a thing she puts out there that I wouldn't mind owning. I could go broke fast!
