If you're interested in me doing a piece for you- even one of your tiny house- let me know.... kidcedar at gmail.com (all the ones shown have SOLD- sorry)- ALSO, we'll have (and make) some cool tiny hands-on art at our next Tiny House Building Workshop- May 1-3 in CT. We'll build a cabin INSIDE an art gallery, that will be on display (publicly) for two months and then auctioned to help out this non-profit art gallery.
THE NEW STUDIO: Why the heck not? As some of you know, a ways back I began renting out a small studio in an old factory in my town (one of about fifteen artist studios on a 3rd floor) simply so I could have some creative fun and get back to painting, sketching, and graffiti-based work. I've been selling original pieces for some time now simply through my personal Facebook page- "Derek Diedricksen", and while I've sketched hundreds and hundreds of tiny cabin ideas for my blog or my books, I've done very few in color.

I figured, why not work on some tiny art pieces, that could be potentially used as decorations in tiny houses, cabins, or tree houses- or for those aspiring for tiny spaces and wanting a little art piece to remind them of their eventual goals?

I'm no Rembrandt, but have been having a lot of fun messing around with salvaged materials, recycled and leftover paints, and small yard sale canvases. So here are a few I did recently.
Also, our Hands-On Tiny House Building and Design workshop in CT (May 1-3 2015) is filling up fast, so if interested, click on the banner near the top of this blog, and then scroll down for details. We have a good deal of women as speakers and experts this year too, which is GREAT!
