Small paintings
                                                

Very much in contrast to the larger paintings, these small drawing-like paintings are painted rather loosely with sense of urgency. 

Unlike the beauty-myth source of the large paintings, the subject matter of the small ones tend to carry some personal involvement/attachment; They are often of 'fandom' images and/or the images that 'break a heart'.
