A miniature art studio for painters

Posted:  Thursday, March 22, 2018 - 7:15am

Maine, which inspires so many writers and artists, is the setting for this custom made miniature art studio in a cigar box, measuring 5 inches x 4 inches as a "Studio of One's Own." A perfect gift for the artist in your life or for yourself. A two-inch watercolor portrait of where the mountains meet the sea sits on a tiny wooden easel. This postage stamp view, comes from the imagination of local Mainer Justin Stephens. He also handcrafted the little easel that holds it, along with the palette (the size of a fingernail) and minuscule brush. On the studio's wall hangs a picture window of Mt. Katahdin (which is actually a vintage postcard). You can see through the artist’s eye what inspired the painting.

This beautiful, one-of-a-kind keepsake is a reminder of unsurpassed beauty in Maine.

The cigar box can even close. I can also do custom work (for only $5 extra) where you can choose between a bottle of red or white wine that sits on the floor (true Bohemian artist style).

Only one available: it can be shipped anywhere in the United States. Find it on our Etsy page.
