Miniatures 3 x 3! Yep, that's right......

"Palm Canyon" 3 x 3 oil on canvas by Terry d. Chacon

These are my entries for the upcoming miniature show at Jack's Fine Art and Framing Gallery in Beaumont, Ca.   Sarah Parker will do the judging.   The reception will be Dec. 8 from 5 to 8 pm.  I hope you can make the reception.   Door prizes, snacks and wine.  Who could ask for anything more.  

When I got the prospectus for this event, I was fearful to try an oil painting this small.   I bought a package of 5 - 3 x 3 inch canvas.   I looked at them constantly and just could not imagine being able to paint anything that small.   Jennifer Dunaway the owner of Jack's called to tell me I needed to give it a try.   When out on location at Palm Canyon recently with my artist pal Patricia Rose Ford, I indeed gave it a try.   It was actually fun.   Working with my palette knife I did the following in my studio.   I think I am hooked, these little gems are falling off the knife and looking pretty good.   I will be donating a 3 x 3 as a door prize, so come on out to the reception and take your chance of winning an original 3 x 3 by me!  

"Laguna Beach"  3 x 3 oil on canvas/palette knife - available to purchase through Jack's Fine Art and Framing Gallery.  

"Moody River" 3 x 3 oil on canvas/palette knife available to purchase through Jack's!

"Santa"   Since it is holiday time, I decided to do a Christmas painting for the event.   3 x 3 oil on canvas/palette knife available to purchase through Jack's!

Also in the show will be "Fancy" lost wax bronze 1 1/2 inch in height.   Available to purchase through Jack's. 

This is Jack's Fine Art and Framing Gallery.
226 East 6th Street
Beaumont, California 92223

Jennifer Dunaway will be professionally  framing my little 3 x 3 pieces.  I am sure they will look fabulous.  

So please come to the opening of the exhibit, see all the minis plus artwork by David Fairrington, Sara Parker and myself.   A lot of work for your Christmas giving.  

Please, ENJOY THE ART!    Terry d. Chacon
