Painters all have their favorite canvasses. Some paint in huge, wall-sized dimensions. Others, smaller.
For Colorado-based Remington Robinson, his canvas is very, very small. Using Altoid mint tins, he paints ‘plein air’, or outdoors, and captures scenery, landscapes, and nature on paper so small it fits within the tin, with his palette of colors below.
It’s a charming medium, creating these pint-sized paintings that are remarkable in their clarity, detail, and accuracy. We are impressed by how Robinson isn’t limited by the size of his canvas, working with some of the most diminutive brushes we’ve ever seen to make his paintings come alive.

Oh, if only we could all concentration on the beauty around us and maybe transfer it to an Altoid tin, we might be able to rid ourselves and the world of the evilness that has become so rampant. No, too simplistic, I know, but these small paintings did me a little world of good. Thank you.
