In My Studio

Yesterday went by in a blink of an eye. I cleaned house, even planted some trumpet vines in the back yard while it was raining! Hours went by without notice while I was painting. I'm feeling better so it felt good to be busy.

I'm having fun painting little ACEOs. These I called "Cotton Fields" and are now listed in my shop at Etsy. Done in "Martha" colors. I plan to a lot more this week. I think these flowers would be pretty on canvas.

Maybe it's spring fever but I'm in a flower mood. Last year at this time I painted lots of flowers in clay pots which sold really well, but I am having fun doing these funky abstract flowers.
I listed lots of originals on Ebay this morning! I was holding off on listing originals for a gallery show and selling mostly prints, but I need more room around here, I've got paintings everywhere!

I haven't painted my mermaids for a while but I painted a little one on a denim canvas tote yesterday that came out so cute. I'm going to give it to my mom for Mother's Day. It will be a good beach bag for her and she loves my mermaids. She lives just blocks from the beach. Hope she doesn't read my blog today! haha I also finished an angel painting on an altered book I had prepared a long time ago. A collector of mine asked me if I ever did paintings on paper or collage papers. I don't very often but decided to give it another try. To my surprise it was pretty fun and the paper was more forgiving than I remember.

Best of luck with your ACEO auction! They are so pretty - fingers crossed there's a bidding war over them!

I LOVE your original aceos on Etsy. Had I some extra money, 2 would be mine by now, as I write this.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I replied to you there about the magnifying lens.
