Miniature painting

I spent the weekend with my family and my garden, so I hadn't much time for miniatures. I made some paintings in the past, but not in miniature scale. Yesterday was the day when I took my thinnest brushes and started to paint. The first picture is the original photo I copied from the net. (It's an italian theme.) The painting is going to get into the gilded frame.

And the most fitting book for a woman was made, too. My favourite novel is Pride and prejudice by Jane Austen. Yearly I read it again! It's a little bit shabby, like my piece!

I send these tulips from my garden to my new followers! I've red your blogs (if you have one) and there are a lot of fantastic miniatures and other works on your pages.

Your painting is beautiful. And as for Jane Austen, I am a dedicated reader of all her books too! Have you watched the BBC production of P&P? It is probably to one most true to the book and one of my favourite movies.

Yes, I've watched the BBC series, and it's the best adaptation. The characters are so English. I think Jane Austen would be satisfied with it. The new movie with Keira Knightley is too American, it was a disillusionment! And I happy you like my painting!

Love both the painting and the book. Had to look at the enlarged book twice... like how you made it look like it´s been read hundred times...
