Little 4X4 Canvases

4x4 Canvas - just getting started

I saw some of these little cuties at Michaels and just couldn't pass them up.
How adorable, right?
Little 4X4 canvases... too cute.


I brought them home thinking they would be super fun additions to my shop.
Small originals that wouldn't take too long to complete and reasonably priced.


I started thinking about Valentine's Day and February too.
So much LOVE in February.
Not just Valentine's Day, but my anniversary the day before, 
my son's birthday, and 
my mother in law's too - 
lots of celebrating.

I started to think that making a series of love inspired mini canvases 
would be a perfect theme.
The attributes of love....perfect!

I started with 1 Corinthians 13 for inspiration.


Love is a beautiful thing.
Real love...unselfish love...the way it was designed.

I am having a great time getting started on my wee little pieces of art.
I will list them in my shop soon!


I am joining all the creativity at Paint Party Friday and Studio Sneak Peek!
Have a loved filled weekend. :)
