Miniature Paintings of Birds, Birds of Prey and Songbirds

Why So Tiny? Wes & Rachelle Siegrist render nearly all their miniature paintings to the exacting standards of formal miniature art societies: small size, reduced scale and refined technique. Their technique will not disappoint under close inspection, even through a magnifying glass! These paintings are gems of fine art for enhancing existing collections. The Artists both currently render their intricate techniques in opaque watercolor.

"It's really an emotional experience to hold them in your hand and view them with a magnifying glass under a good light at home! That's one of the things that make miniatures so special is the intimacy of being able to hold them in your hand and see them up close." ~ Reggie Birks and Mac Edwards

Quotes About Miniature Art

"The range is impressive, but on closer inspection the winners are always the same...They hold up under the harsh eye of the magnifying glass; they bridge the paradox of being balanced but dynamic; they use size not as a restriction but as an intimate area for experiment...They have spirit....They go beyond the visual facts to show you the significance of the subject." Marty Munson 1992 MASF Exhibition Judge commenting on awarded works.
