I Paint Miniature Watercolors To Show That Beauty Is In The Little Things

I've been interested in art ever since I was young - taking art classes throughout school, camps during the summer, and practicing in my free time. Now that I've reached the ripe old age of twenty, I've decided to try to take my hobby to the next level.
My first set of miniature watercolor paintings was created in secret - Christmas gifts for my family. They had fallen in love with these gifts - the looks on their faces had made me feel alive again. Their happiness and joy brought me back into the world of art. These miniatures would be the first step in branching out into the realm of sharing my work- something I've never been comfortable with doing.
To liven up the photographs that I share on social media, I began adding fun props for size comparison. Something as simple as a coffee bean would show how small my works really were.
Today, I am in love with art. I love the challenge of creating these teeny tiny pieces with watercolors. So I press on- creating new works every day- with my new found love. I'm turning my hobby into my career- and trying to make my artistic dreams come true.
Finding beauty in the little things.
