More tiny birds, some less tiny than others

My birdies and I are busting out! Two blog posts in two days, and I jumped up a size for some of my tiny paintings!

For those who wonder, I do collage little bits of stuff in behind the paintings, because it helps me not to be so afraid of the "blank page." The "blank page" sounds like a funny thing to be afraid of, but it is like other unknowns that make us gulp and back away at first. Collaged bits of humor, love, hope, joy, light, color, and courage make the unknown approachable, not so fearsome, and maybe knowable.

At least that is how I feel after I paint these little tiny birds.
