Working Smallscale

So here are a few painting I did last weekend. I decided to work super-small so that I would actually get something done. Based on what I accomplished, I think the 1 inch is too small. The 1.5 inch paintings look much better. I think I may try my hand at ACEOs, which are playing card sized at 2.5 x 3.5 inches. I'm toying with the idea of putting the fish up for sale on etsy to just see if they will sell.

On another note, while looking through, I was rather dismayed to see quite a bit of artwork that resembled more of my doodle based pieces. Apparently there is a "new" art movement called zentangles where people doodle freeform for ostensibly therapy. I'm not sure how I feel about doodling 1. being commercialized (there is a site that sells zentangle kits) 2. being referred to as a new artform--seems like most of us, at somepoint, have doodled to relax, pass the time, etc. That's nothing new and I certainly don't want people to think I'm "copying" this "new" style. Hmmm . . . maybe more thoughts on this later.

Constructive feedback is always appreciated.
