Art: Be Happy Now

These acrylic paintings by Russian born, Israeli based artist Jenny Meilihove are somehow perfect for the season.  The juxtaposition between small and large and bright and subdued creates a balance that many strive for and few find in their work.  Jenny is proficient in a number of different media including watercolor and pastels and I'm especially smitten with her portraits which just happen to be available in calendar form.  Isn't her work enchanting?

Enchanting is the exact word I would use to describe them too! I adore the colors and the tiny animals.
