This may be cliché, but when was the last time you really stopped to smell the flowers?

Hey there! My name is Rachel Beltz and I am on a mission to make people stop and appreciate the “little” wonderful details of their everyday life. Using watercolors, I aim to create realistic miniatures; each of my pieces are roughly the size of a United States Quarter (for my International friends, that’s about 28 x 28 mm.)

Imagine a house small enough to fit under a single key on your keyboard... maybe your favorite singer... or even a ferocious tiger that could fit under a mere postage stamp? I have painted them all; squeezing in each and every detail.

I paint for the details. Hopefully, you can bring some of this into your daily life. I have spent my 22 years of life on Earth rushing - I don't want other people to do the same.

Marilyn Monroe one of the world's most beautiful woman. She'd love these colors in lipstick.

Look at me and don't deny that you love my picture. But please don't mistake me for a postage stamp.

Would love one of my cat. Would put it into a charm or locket. Just ideas for you to share your art.
