"Gnome's Home" - Original abstract contemporary acrylic ink painting by Pennsylvania Artist Pat Koscienski

"Gnome's Home"
6" x 6"
Ink on canvas

This painting was done using string gel and ink on canvas. The greens, red, and ochres reminded me of grasses and mushrooms where a little gnome would want to live. This painting, along with 11 others of mine, will be hanging at 2nd Floor Gallery, 105 S Market St, Mechanicsburg until Dec.31, 2012. If you are in the area, please drop in to see this exhibit...many other miniature pieces from local artists are in the show. If you have any questions or wish to purchase, contact Pat. If you would like to see more of my paintings, both abstract and representational, please visit my website at:

Waldo - miniature acrylic frog painting by Pennsylvania Painter Pat Koscienski

6" x 6"

This painting was done for the Mechanicsburg Art Center's Miniature Exhibit.  MAC is located at 18 Artcraft Drive in Mechanicsburg, PA.  The exhibit will be hanging until Nov. 21, 2012, so if you are in the area please stop in to see it.  The exhibit has 90 miniatures from local artists...4  are mine.  By the way, he got this name because when my husband and I would sit up by the pond, we would ask, "Where's Waldo?"  He was either sitting on a lily pad or hiding in one of the grasses we have in the pond.  Sometimes it would take us quite a while to find him; he was quite good with the camouflage.  If you have any questions, or wish to purchase, contact PAT.   If you would like to see more of my paintings from  miniatures, landscapes, figurative, portraits, wildlife, abstract.....please visit my website at:
