2.5×3.5″ acrylic

I made a preliminary start on a few Artist-Trading-Card-sized works, as that size is working well for me right now. And when I paint this small and (relatively) quickly with a brush, the acrylic reminds me about what I like about oil (staying workable and intermixing)—but without the fumes or the longer drying time. This one was fun to paint, especially on a day I had no clue about what I was going to make for my daily jane!
