Remembering the good ol' days of posting ACEOs up for sale on eBay, and missing my high end fantasy work, I have decided to go back to the wee cards and start creating. They're quick, perfect little getaways from projects (as a break mind you, not because the project is painstaking), and allow me to paint what I can not right now. I miss having the time to do large, highly detailed, and magical pieces, yet am so fully blessed and grateful for all of the work I have today. :)
So I have two original ACEOs up for sale in my Etsy shop, "Essence of Spring" and "Tangerine". I just finished one this morning and it's part of a series. I love doing the seasons. I did the four seasons in 2005...and wow, what a difference! Here's the first spring next to my new spring. It's interesting how you can see progression in your work when you sit them side by side.
I have also placed up a few new originals that were created for IllustrationFriday, except the mouse...that was for fun and enjoyment:
"The Quilting Mouse"
"Let's Go Fishing"
