BEFORE YOU MEET YOUR HANDSOME PRINCE....



YOU HAVE TO KISS A LOT OF TOADS!!!!!!!(I'm still waiting)
Looks a bit scared there doesn't he? Please don't be alarmed,no toads were harmed during the making of these photos...I rescued him from my driveway-I don't know how I didn't squish him as I pulled away,as he was sheltering under my tires,most probably chased there by a cat,there are lots prowling round here. He now has been given a nice safe damp hedge to hide in ,but couldn't resist the photos opportunity first!

FOREVER ACEO


Currently for sale in my store HERE,this is a very richly colourful altered art aceo entitled 'Forever' Work includes vintage image,paints,inks,glazes and vintage paper collage .
Really soulful and interesting addition to your art card collection!
Signed and dated on the reverse.


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.

WHY NOT BECOME A COLLECTOR YOUR SELF OR BEGIN A COLLECTION AS A SPECIAL GIFT FOR A FRIEND TODAY-THE VARIETIES ARE ENDLESS!

The painting now has a strong base and I think I'm ready to start building in more details and adding light and warmer shades of golden limes to soften the deep purples.

Studio photos-the NEW Unit!!









I SO LOVE my new studio unit ( well new-ish, I moved across from my original teeny one in December,so am still quite excited!)I finally remembered to take my camera with me last week,although,it was,as you will see,the wettest,dullest day i could have possibly chosen!!
Never mind-there are always plenty of colours scattered across my easel and worktops, and in the second of the photos you can still just about see the sea-it's so close to the workshops but looks much more distant as the rain has kind of turned sea and sky to the same ambiguous shade of misty grey.... roll on springtime, I will update with happy blue-skied photos next time!
