Tiny Building Portraits by Marcia Alscher

There's a beautiful minimalism to these small graphic and abstract paintings of ordinary houses by Kentucky-based retired architect Marcia Alscher. The images record the modest architecture of her area and transform it into something both childlike in its simplicity and sophisticated in its elegance.

The paintings are acrylic on canvas and only 4x6 or 8x10-inches in size. The artist offers many of them for sale from her website where the framed works range in price from $50 to $500.
