Although this may be
a miniature it is not considered a true miniature.
In order to be a true miniature the subject must be 1/6th of
life size or smaller. The bleeding heart in this painting is
about the size of the actual blossom. This little piece however
is still painted with the same careful attention to detail as
in all of my work, whether it is a true miniature or otherwise.
