Here’s a sampling of our favorites:

 1. Dancing on Air – Blue Herons by Beverly Abbott

This new miniature painting by Beverly Abbott features a stunning orange color that is not usually seen in her pieces. The gorgeous blue herons – a rare species to see in the wild – add further beauty to the piece. Its small size is a great present under the tree, too!

 2. Mickey’s 60th Birthday – Donald Duck by Walt Disney Studios

 3. Over a Barrel by Lee Mims

 4. Large Crab Vase #2 by Diane Lee

The high quality detail and Carolina blue glaze makes it an excellent statement piece for the home or office, and a tasteful choice for the gifter and the recipient alike

 5. Carolina Wren #5 by Karen Chamblin

Isn’t this Carolina Wren absolutely adorable? An original miniature oil painting by Karen Chamblin, this pocket-size artwork is the perfect stocking stuffer that can fit under the tree with more room to spare.
