A Cold Winter’s Day

Over the years I have switched to smaller canvases. I don’t know if it because of my adult ADD and the idea a finished painting on a big canvas take a while to complete from concept to finished painting. Maybe it is the fact smaller canvases are cheaper to buy or find at the local thrift store.

Tip of the day. I often buy a small frame at the local thrift store, take the cardboard out of the frame and use it as my canvas. The upswing is it costs me $1.97 to get a canvas and a frame to put my finished painting in when I’m done.

Whatever the reason I switched to small canvases I still had a couple of larger canvases left to paint on which led me to today’s offering an acrylic on canvas entitled, “A Cold Winter’s Day.”




I am a self taught artist who for lack of a better term considers myself to be a nob classical folk artist. I love to dabble in all mediums and all types of subject matter. I especially love to add a little whimsy to many of my creations. I hope you enjoy my blog Inspire Arts as well as the companion site VioLil Arts named after two of my grand children.
