A Little Plug

Since it’s a holiday week and I’m sure most of you are pretty focused on all the joyous chaos that will unfold come the 23rd, I’ve decided not to do any major updates this week. Instead I’m going to do one of those shameless plugs for my store. This lady has gotta eat, so here I go with all my shamelessness. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I’ve got a few ACEOs that have been hanging around for awhile that are now on sale.

Along with that my recent ACEOs, Western Gate and Northern Passage, are now mounted and ready for a lovely new home.

As well there are also a few original drawings and prints waiting to become an addition to someone’s personal art collection or gifted to someone special.

So be sure to visit qrumbley.com to get yourself or someone special something lovely to add a little something delightful to their life.

Until my next post, HAPPY THANKSGIVING and may the odds forever be in your favor in surviving the Black Friday madness. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’œ

Tiny Art

Back when I was in college my art professors were fond of fussing at me for making my drawings too small. Like most art classes we were always instructed to get a 20×24 pad of newsprint sketching paper, upon which we drew everything. Blind contours, still life, life drawings, nudes, whatever they put before us, we had to draw it…on them damned 20×24 pads of newsprint, using every inch of space there was. The size was overwhelming to me and I hated it. I also hated lugging that thing around, making it so bloody obvious that I was an art student. Til this day whenever I see newsprint I have a knee jerk reaction of disgust. Needless to say, all the fussing didn’t change anything. I still draw small but who would have knew that after all those years “tiny art” would become a thing. With the internet, particularly with social media sites like Instagram, I’m stumbling across more and more artists who have an affinity for the small. Maybe this trend will become a huge deal and more galleries will be open to doing more shows featuring these small works of mastery. I count myself among the many who create miniature art and wanted to share a few that I have come across so far.
