"Ekleipein" is a tiny original watercolor + gouache painting on Fabriano watercolor paper, measures 18x27 mm, framed in a thrift store timeless watch. The face is silver with a black genuine leather band. Signature, year of creation + title are all hand written on the back of the tiny painting.
Inspired by time spent admiring wildflowers underneath the eclipse, August 21st, 2017. True tiny story: Timeless watches are lighter than regular watches. In more ways than one, they no longer hold the weight of time. Rather, they hold just a moment...
The watchband is adjustable + measures 15.5 cm(6.25 in.) from the first hole to 20 cm(8 in.) from the last hole.

Tiny art is smaller than it appears on screen. Please read measurements carefully before making a purchase. All measurements will be shown from millimeter to inches. Keep in mind that a magnifying glass is not required to see the details or appreciate its beauty, though one may increase your viewing pleasure.
These are tiny fine art pieces and should be treated as such. Paints used are high quality acrylic, watercolor and/or gouache. All are water-based and unvarnished to retain the original character of the medium and reduce exposure to harmful chemicals. Nevertheless, your tiny art will last a lifetime with proper care.
Please do not get wet. Keep away from water and flame sources. Avoid displaying tiny art in direct sunlight and where it will experience extreme temperature changes and humidity, like sunrooms, bathrooms or outdoors.
An occasional light dusting with a dry, lint-free cloth is acceptable, as needed. Should you want additional protection for your tiny art, please consider framing, shadow boxes or a glass cloche.
