Miniature Painting – St. Joseph Church  

Completed painting.

St. Joseph Church (2 x 2 inches; oil) 



I painted this miniature on location at St. Joseph Catholic Church at Zell, Missouri on April 3, 2017. I am trying out my homemade pochade box made from an Altoids mint tin. It is lined with a cut sheet of palette paper. The paper and canvas panel are held in place with some double-sided foam tape. I painted this while sitting in the van.  Good thing too, because a thunderstorm rolled through while I was painting. All in all, it was a lot of fun and the pochade tin worked great!

I am happy to report that 6 out of 7 of my dollhouse miniature paintings have been sold over the past 60 days! It’s time to replenish the supply. The following is an animated gif of my latest dollhouse miniature.
