ACEO Update

I'm now able to offer free shipping on my ACEO on ebay.

Your ACEO will arrive with a protective sleeve and be wrapped with love and lots of extra padding to protect it on it's journey.  I'm including a discount code/message for next purchase from me.  This is my first original ACEO ever to be sold.  
My style isn't usually as whimsical as this but after all, we are welcoming Spring now!
I've begun a new series called "No one's Orphan".  It will be ready this Spring also.

I have a series coming up this Summer but I have to get a few legalities out of the way for my own sake as well as the potential buyer's.  It goes beyond copy right as I want you to know that you have my official little creation and it's authentic.  This little guy I came up with in the early 80's is worth being a copy cat about and we don't want that ;-) So I'll keep everyone here posted as to that.  

I've also made up some papier-mache cards for ACEOs,  Some have a small lip to hold some dimensional magic by mod podge from Dick Blick for a 3d effect.  I'll be painting direct on some of these and on other's I will surface with canvas paper depending on what sort of texture I am aiming for.  I can't leave out my papier- mache and Mod Podge for too long.  Recycle, reduce, reuse!

Here is a Postcard I did the other day and decided to leave it a little on the plain side.  It's called the Melting Pot?

Here it is:

First ACEO-First ebay listing

Original ACEO Acrylic, Ink and Watercolor listed on ebay.

I wanted to offer free shipping but ebay's shipping calculator quoted some ridiculous amount---I'll go to the post office Monday and investigate lol For now it's pick up only ;-)  It's so much better in person--I scanned this and it doesn't show the deep colors nor the slight sparkles and sheen,  

There will be more to come and quicker now that I have a plan ;-) 
I'll be working them in series after this.  
I had Spring time on the brain when I created this one.

WIP is now complete

I even have an ebay account.  I may very well be the last person in the world to get one, but I am there now :-)  I have nothing listed yet, but I can see why people love it so much.  I may end up buying more than I sell ;-) 
I noticed that beyond the profile page there is also another page like an "about me"  I have a lot to learn still on there, but I'm all for education. 

I watched the following video:

And now I realize that I must have these pigment sticks!  They seem like a dream come true!

R&F Pigment Sticks
They are a great brand of oil sticks (different than oil pastels) and the perfect solution for someone like me who uses acrylics but wants to try oil painting. They just look smooth like butter.  Love it!
