My daily delight and obsession is making a tiny painting which becomes the "image-a-day." Now that these are stacking up (there are 84 pins on the Image-a-Day board on Pinterest), I have begun to imagine good uses for them. One project is the Virtual Victorian House which has plenty of space for these images as they are imagined into tile and rug designs. Every Victorian needs wallpaper, and now I have wallpaper designs, too.
