These are my newest "manos", hobbit-like tiny creatures. They're about 1"x 1.5" and fun to make after or between more serious work.

Thanks, Ms. "Krazy", I truly appreciate it! Hope people will like them and even buy them, as I will make tonnes of them. I never get bored with them.

Erika,
These are fantastic! Given their size, they are even more incredible!
They are so expressive and I'm sure people will find them very exciting and will want to purchase.

Glad you like them Barb, I think they have more chance in real life, the enlarged photos don't work to their advantage.

Real nice work, The colors and details are great. The one on the bottom looks bigger than 1"x11/2.
Perfection is what drives an artist.
The inability to achieve perfection is what creates a work of art.

Erica,

These are absolutely magnificent! You have a great god given gift.

You are very patient to have sculpted and painted such tiny figures.

I'm sorry for not seeing this post sooner. I have been very busy and today is the first day I could spend time on my computer. I was scrolling through some of the older posts and came across this one.

I'll go to the website, can't wait to see more.

Thanks a lot, Karen. No more patient than you with woodburning. :D It comes naturally for me to make faces I guess.

There's also a video of them on You Tube if you're interested:

Thanks, Mike. They're somewhere in an ambiguous place between art and craft I think.
