Mixed Media Canvas


I can't wait to get back into the studio this weekend,I've been feeling quite itchy at my lack of creating this past few days-lovely as the Christmas break has been! There are lots of new ideas brewing so even though I may not have been creating as such my notebook has been near to hand at all times for the scribbling of ideas which might bubble to the surface in a quiet moment-I live in fear of a day when I get into the studio and go 'blank' as I might then have to tidy up and that would never do!
I am in the midst of a large canvas painting which I have been working on for some time. I have tried to be as diligent as possible and photographed it throughout the working process so I will get them into order and post a series of 'work in progress' style pics here soon-I hope it's of interest, I am always fascinated to see how other artists build a painting from a blank canvas myself!.

The piece pictured above is a mixed media altered art style canvas collage,with a lovely vintage feel. It is currently for sale in my ebay store-if you would like to visit CLICK HERE!

Dreams and Wishes ACEO



Currently for sale in my etsy store-CLICK HERE to visit.
This piece is entitled 'Dreams and Wishes' and includes collaged images,inks,acrylic paints,musical script,stamping and sweet moveable altered tag attached with a tiny brad (see photos!)
It is lightly glazed to finish and protect. Very appealing little piece!





What are ACEOs???? ACEO is the acronym for "Art Cards Editions and Originals". An ACEO is a small piece of art that can be defined by it's convenient 2.5 x 3.5 inch size. (Standard trading card size)
ACEOs are VERY different from trading cards however, because they are CREATED and traded or sold by artists. All my ACEOs are absolute ORIGINAL pieces of art! (Some artists choose to sell prints of their work -'editions' )

ACEOs are created in any medium available in the art world. Artists are creating them in ALL kinds of styles and varieties. There are no rules limiting the artist, outside of the size dimensions. ACEOs can be framed, propped, used as bookmarks,grouped together in larger frames......use YOUR imagination! Trading Card notebooks, sleeves and holders can all be used to display them.

Life Drawing



Just for a change today, I thought I would share a couple of the life drawings I produced in class this week. These were created using ink on bleach,which gives a lovely soft effect. I particularly like when the bleach is loaded on and drips down the page, and will ise this effect again in the future. I am not sure of the shelf life of such work as there is a strong chance that the bleach will dissolve the paper eventually,so I may well be glad to have photographed the originals for future reference!
