Hearts and Jewels ~ I've been painting some little ones lately and this one is acrylics on unstretched canvas and it's 4 x 4 inches.

We had a pretty strong storm move through last night and the electricity went off at 7:30 p.m. (darnit missed Survivor). It didn't come back on until 6 this morning! The power was off all over the area and I counted 11 of the power company trucks on my way home from work today. Those guys had probably worked around the clock getting everyones electricity back on. I would like to salute those workers and say "Thanks for turning the lights back on!"

I think this one would lend itself well to digital manipulation. Are you still using Dogwaffle?

I could see using some of the filter or layer style effects from photoshop -- especially if you separated some of the designs and did them separately in layers.

Wonder if your storms werent our unexpected rain this morning. More on the way.

Hi Jan, that's a great idea! I think I'll try some manips of this one and see how they turn out. Yes, I'm still using Dogwaffle. I just wish I had a decent printer to make art prints with. My daughter just bought a printer but I don't think it's good enough to make archival prints. I've been having luck selling some acrylic aceos in abu. A lady bought 3 of them! Now if I can keep it up, maybe it's just luck but I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Yep that was probably the same storm you got.

Very interesting painting Lyn! It looks like a series of symbols, and we're left to decipher the code.

I like a really good thunderstorm that knocks the lights out once in awhile, but not if I'm in the middle of something!

Hi Cyn, yep me too, I love watching the sky during storms. The last time the electricity went out was on the night of July 4 and we saw a spectacular show in the sky that night from heat lightening traveling across the whole sky! Talk about cool! Thanks for the nice comments on my painting, I don't even know what the symbols are LOL I guess it's mainly an abstracted one.

Lynette, this is a wonderful piece! I love this! I'm seeing it big, though -- 24x24, maybe. Just imagine the impact of this on a wall. Awesome!

Congrats on your ABU sales, I've got my fingers crossed for you!

Thanks W.J.! I've been doing little paintings here lately but I'm going to try some larger ones soon. I currently have bids on my last 2 aceo's too (pinching myself cause I can't believe the luck I'm having with my Halloween aceos!!) :D
