SCALE
is this week's theme at Illustration Friday. I guess the week is almost over actually. But I prefer to take a wider view of these things: it's Illustration Friday ALL WEEK in my opinion!

I was interested to see so many varying interpretations of the theme...musical scales, fish scales, weighing scales, proportional scale and what have you. I'm going for small scale here. This is one of the smallest paintings I have ever done, yet the objects are slightly larger than life-size! It's all relative.

Great...super job on the reflections, especially considering the small scale of the painting itself...

I really like your idea for scale. It's definitely a different approach. The reflections are great and it makes we want to eat the candy!
