Celebrate Small! Original art anyone can afford…

Small works, big impact! Paintings by Alison Leigh Lilly

Celebrate small at Gallery North this month!

I’m so excited to announce that six of my paintings were chosen to be featured in this year’s Small Works Art Show at Gallery North in Edmonds! They’ll be on display all this month, March 1-30, alongside the work of other talented artists working small in every medium, from watercolor to oil, acrylic, pastel and more!

As a watercolor artist, I love working small — it’s an opportunity to slow down and lean in, to dwell in the intimate details of late winter and early spring. I’ve always been fascinated by texture and pattern, the slick surface of wet stone, the tangle of wildflowers flecked with pollen. Giving myself permission to work small also means taking a break from the noise and flash that dominate our media-soaked lives these days. To spend time enjoying the small, simple moments of beauty that I find all around me when I remember to pause and pay attention.

And there’s another benefit to working small — it’s more affordable! Not just for me as an artist, but for you, the art lover, as well! The Small Works Show is a chance to own a work of original art without having to break the bank. Plus, you’re supporting local artists at the same time! What’s not to love?

So make sure to stop by Gallery North this month and celebrate small!

Colors of Desire
The Power of Three Common Colors

“Red as blood, white as snow, black as a raven’s wing….” These three colors appear again and again in folklore the world over, but why? What is it about this triad that exerts such power on our collective imaginations?
