Today I went to the Metchosin Art Gallery where there was a Massively Mini Art Show on display. We found out about it from our friend Angie who put some of her art work in it. And she told us that it was really cool. So today we went to look at it and there was some really cool stuff there! We saw a lot of mini paintings done in acrylic.

I was amazed at this one artist did 5 or 6 paintings of the exact same bird with just different backgrounds – 6 times! I just couldn’t believe that – and 3 of them got bought. At first I thought “Why would someone do the same art and put it in the same gallery – make different pieces!” But I also thought “these paintings are cool”. Now, I think it’s a pretty cool idea to do the same art over again with different backgrounds because they are good at that drawing and you want to make other ones while still doing what the artist is good at.
My favourite piece was Angela Menzies piece – it was a cat with a crown (in the photo - orange background and blue crown) – I really liked that one because it was really beautiful and inspiring at the same time with all the amazing colours.
