How Large is a Good Painting?

The Channel at Livingston Bay
Original Watercolor (8x10")

One of my criteria for a "good painting" is that the impact is the same whether it is large or small.
A small painting, when it has enough emotional content, can seem large in the eye of the viewer.

I hope you'll agree that this one fits the criteria. How big did you imagine it to be?

I am finishing up the framing for this one to go into the Camano Island Plein Air Event, which opens on Sunday. There will be a live auction as well as a follow-up show at Gallery by the Bay in Stanwood.
