I have been working on some little painted miniatures, they are perfect size for a doll house or they would look lovely on a ribbon worn as a necklace. The size of painting is 1 inch oval and comes with the gold leafed frame and black satin bow, signed and dated on back. Each little painting comes in a lovely gilded keepsake box. This one is called Wood Thrush. The book I am reading is a old school book called Primary Language Lessons by Emma Serl dated 1911. I use this book with my daugther as an enrichment workbook, I like the way this book uses reproductions of prominent paintings as a learning tool, Miss Searl teaches children in observation and discussion, it helps train children in art appreciation.
