I started a miniature of bluebirds sitting on a branch in a snowstorm. Remember the photo of the poor little bluebird, I took during our February Blizzard? Well, I was so pleased with my first painting session and set it aside to show my husband. Guess what? He noticed that my bluebirds were not 1/6 scale, but more like 1/3 scale. Oh well, I will use them in a small works show since they are technically not a miniature.
