The Circus comes to Wibbley World

This month's Nibblefest theme is Circus.

I'm offering something new this time, a miniature painting on wood, which (on request) can be converted into a pendant. I've painted quite a lot of these already but this is the first I'm offering them for sale - I hope they do well because I really love making them!

Micro Jumbo
1" x 1.25"
Genesis heat-set Oils on Wood

My other Nibblefest entry is, predictably, Lunchbox:

Lunchbox, Lost in the Circus
4 x 6
Oil on Canvas

Whatever you do Lunchbox, DON'T LOOK DOWN!!!

This painting makes me nervous just looking at it, I have a terrible fear of heights (unlike certain chipmunks!)

Micro Jumbo is so tiny! Love it. How do you like heat set oils?

Vicky Knowles said...

Thanks Lilly! I have others that are even smaller too! I'll probably put those on ETSY though since ebay's been kind of stinky lately. I just need to price them.

I love the heat set oils, I can't say enough good things about them (I feel like I should do a commercial for them). They don't ever dry up until you bake them (which means almost no waste on the palette), theres no smell at all, they blend well & they clean up with rubbing alcohol. I strongly recommend them, can you get them in Germany?

These are great! I especially love the design of the highwires in the circus, with the characters on them. :)
