“I have one more request,” she said excitedly.

“What’s that?” the preacher replied.

“This is very important,” she continued. “I want to be buried with a fork in my right hand.”

The preacher looked at her, not knowing quite what to say.

“That surprises you?” she asked.

“To be honest, I am puzzled,” he replied.

The woman explained, “In all my years of attending church fellowships and potluck dinners, I always remember that when the dishes were being cleared, someone would inevitably lean over and say, ‘Keep your fork.’ It was my favorite part, because I knew that meant something better was coming . . . like velvety chocolate cake or deep-dish apple pie. Something wonderful! So I want people to see me in that casket with a fork in my hand. When they ask you, ‘What’s with the fork?’ Then I want you to tell them, ‘She believed the best is yet to come.’”

The Original Framed Artwork may be couriered world wide at the cost of the purchaser.

"A bit of this.....a bit of that" collection image

Why miniature? I have been completely and utterly fascinated for years by miniaturists. I admired their patience and diligence in the work, and I loved the fact that they could still leave their little mark. It made sense to work on something small. I wouldn’t have to worry about ruining expensive paints and art supplies if I literally only had a few moments here and there. Watercolours were the obvious choice. I didn’t need a large amount of space- and it was all very easily packed away.

More importantly- small, and “teeny-tiny”, are often conversation pieces. That is what I was aiming for. I longed for people to talk about a piece- without having to talk about the artist. People tend to do that when life size becomes a mini. There is an attraction. Is it because this world is consumed by bigger must be better? Perhaps.
