I needed some color today.....

It's rainy and gloomy today so I thought I'd paint some beautiful color in my world.This and all my ACEO's are available on Ebay
I also painted the top landscape today since it kept raining.

something different for a change

This is a 4" x 6" acrylic painting on heavy watercolor paper.
I guess I was in a dark mood.

Too hot to do gardening so I guess I'll just paint

All 3 Sold
These are the latest ACEO originals I've painted.Ebay has turned into a nice little side business for me.I have several collectors buying my work on a weekly basis now.I might have to work on some more abstracts,I'm kind of getting burned out on landscapes, although they are my favorite things to paint.

The arbor is done and it turned out beautiful!

My husband Tim has been working on this arbor for about a year and it is finally completed.It stands 10' high and 4' wide.He began three years ago removing an old above ground pool from the previous owners of our house and turning the empty area into a Japanese garden.The old pool had a wood deck surrounding the perimeter.He cut a section out of the deck and that became the area for the arbor.The actual garden is almost complete with bamboo fencing as it's backdrop.It's approximately 28' in diameter.
The metal sculpture displayed in the middle of the arbor was hand crafted by our friend Jeff Howard.Jeff is a metal sculptor artist and made this for us as a gift.

latest ACEO's

I've created some collector cards from some of my photography and one of a photo of a painting I did a while back.Now that the weather is nice I don't want to sit inside and paint so by creating these prints I can keep up with the demand of the ACEO collectors and not spend hours painting.It's a win win ; )
