This weekend, my cousin stopped by on her way to Seattle to the Ohio state game. Not a football fan myself but I'm always excited when someone's really into something (and it was good to see my cousin.) We made buckeyes in her honor (Ohio state being the Buckeyes.) If you've never had a buckeye, it's like a fancier version of a peanut butter cup, but fashioned just like a real buckeye, which is some kind of nut, I think.
So I couldn't help but get excited by the process of making the buckeyes, which created a terrain of these peanut butter ball armies:
And then I got inspired to remain on this small scale, and found myself painting these itty bitty paintings. They're about the size of my palm. Don't let that picture fool you, that paintbrush has hairs the size of eyelashes!
