6" Original Circles Painting, "Sweetness"

Mini Originals

These are a selection of my small, one-of-a-kind original acrylic paintings. Each one is lovingly made with my signature "Lots of Dots," finished on all four sides so that it can be enjoyed from any angle, and thoughtfully named with sweet, found words of inspiration. Perfect to give to yourself or a special person in your life. These 1.5" deep canvases can hang on the wall or easily stand on a shelf or a table. If you see something here that you like and is marked “sold out,” email me to re-create it for you!

6" Original Circles Painting, "Sweetness"


Original acrylic on cradled birch. Dimensions are 6 x 6" with a pleasing 1.5" depth. My Circles series is a layered, luminous contemporary collection with iridescent details and a glossy finish. The combination is a fun and elegant color celebration! Sides are titled with found inspirations and finished with a varnish for a clean, modern look. Ready to hang on the wall or stand on a table or shelf. Beautiful in pairs and trios.

Bring a little pop of color into your life with one of my vibrant, one-of-a-kind original miniature paintings!

And, don't worry... edges are straight and squared... "fisheye" effect comes from my close camera distance! (Hey, I'm a painter, not a photographer!)
