Small works by Emerson, Seneca, and Sivananda

In preparation for an art show, I created these miniature tabletop pieces, with easel backs. They were sold as nice little gifts that don't require a frame. I used various color schemes, and some of the wrapped backgrounds were actually prints of my own hand marbled papers. Others are miscellaneous papers from my extensive stash. Some of the quotes I used for these pieces were:

"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us" - Emerson

"One of the most beautiful qualities of friendship is to understand and to be understood" - Seneca

"Put your heart, mind, intellect and soul into even your smallest acts. This is the secret of success" - Sivananda
