Fragment: Bottle and Tibetan Carpet

Painting a day: Bottle and Tibetan Carpet
"Fragment: Bottle and Tibetan Carpet"
Oil on panel, 4 x 4 inches

This Fragment is a study for a larger upcoming painting, though I don't exactly know when I'll begin it. At 4x4 inches, this is the maximum size I'm allowing for the Fragments series.

Sometimes I look at detailed sections before I begin, and get the feeling I won't enjoy it. That was what I thought before I worked on the carpet in this piece: this will just be a lot of unrewarding busy-work. Fortunately that was not the case: I somehow got in the zone, and that was the most enjoyable part of the painting for me.

Fragments is a new series of very small paintings, generally in the ACEO format, or 2.5 x 3.5 inches. They are studies for upcoming works, details from previous pieces, or simply found objects which caught my attention. I debated how to price these, and finally opted to make them extremely accessible and affordable. For the time being, the starting bids will be set at just $25.
