Small Treasures 1

Art comes in all sizes. So how much punch can you pack into something that's only 10 inches tall - or even smaller?

We are delighted to present Small Treasures 1.  

Enjoy! Glen & Marie Guarino

Looking at "Small Treasures", it is fascinating to consider the focus on  detail which was part of each artist's process. Only by looking at the measurements can one understand and appreciate the scale.
