This is one of Hans Gabali's mini paintings. Hans was an individualist and not limited in his thinking by convention. As such, his work was not limited to walls or canvas. Anything that was paintable was a potential part of his art. In this case he used a discarded piece of wood.

This scene of a sail boat on a (bavarian?) mountain lake is classic Gabali. Its style is definitely impressionistic as evidenced by the wide, flowing brush strokes. It contains several of his trademark elements: alpine scenerey, sailboats and flowers. You can see from the frayed edges that is was painted on a rectangular scrap of masonite. The date is unknown, but it was definitely painted before 2000 and is probably one of his older works. In the lower left hand corner, you can see his initial "H".

This is one of his "postage stamp paintings" ( it is about the size of a postage - about 1' by 1 1/4 "). The fact that at first glance, the viewer has no clue as to it's 'true size', is monumental tribute to his talent! The detail in this painting may seem crude at first but is actually quite impressive when viewed in actual scale- to see the true size click here.

This is a one of Hans Gabali's larger mini paintings. It measures  3 x 4  . It is a still-life painting of a pot full of flowers. Date Unknown.

Whenever Hans was unable to paint murals, due to weather or other factors, he would paint small pictures on scraps of wood. Not limited to canvas as a medium, and strongly adverse to wasting things, any small un-needed objects were turned into works of art in his garage workshop rather than discarded.
