Little Windows into a World of Light and Beauty
The days are getting shorter and shorter. By the time everyone gets home, it's almost completely dark. Most of the yard has been cleaned up, and you're already bracing yourself for how cold it's going to be. The entire month seems to be dominated by holiday plans, namely Thanksgiving.
"When all the colors of autumn have faded, you realize how much you miss having color in your life, and you know that artwork will be like windows into a world of light and inspiration and beauty. "
As the guest list balloons and deflates with each passing day, you realize how you're spreading yourself out so thinly to accommodate everyone and everything. Just out of curiosity you turn up the page of the calendar to see what happens immediately after the big holiday, and right there on December 1st you see a note you made to yourself, The 25 Days of Minis.
It's so important to remember what gives us the balance we need when our lives threaten to pull us in so many different directions. When all the colors of autumn have faded, you realize how much you miss having color in your life, and you know that artwork will be like windows into a world of light and inspiration and beauty. This isn't a time to make big plans, but small works of art will be the perfect compromise as the perfect treat for all that you do.
The 25 Days of Minis was designed to serve an important purpose. The artists are reminding everyone to treat themselves to a small treasure. New collectors are making great discoveries, and old collectors are building on a thrill that has been years in the making. There is something special for everyone, something handmade, unique, colorful and just brilliant. As artists, this is our gift to you, the gift of perfect little pieces of ourselves.
