Stop the Clock ~ (or at least turn it back one hour) Acrylics on stretched canvas 11 X 14 inches. Well I just finished this abstract one last night and don't know what the heck it's about but I must have been subconciously thinking about turning the clock back one hour last night for Daylight Savings Time. Ugh that must be why I feel so tired today, it always messes with my internal clock when we have to do that but I'm glad we gained an hour instead of losing one. Well I finally got up my nerve and listed a my little redsky ACEO on E-bay last night. It feels like putting a tiny fish into a gargantuan ocean of listings though, eek! http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200041854616 I have no feedback in there so I'll be surprised to get many views or any bids but you have to start somewhere with the big E I guess.

REDSKY MOON ~ This is another little one, an ACEO I just finished and it's acrylics and shiny blue metallic enamel for the dots on the crazy bridge which change from light to dark when they reflect the light. I also painted 2 of these in blue but I like the red one best. It's available at artbyus.com at auction right now.

What the heck is that in the sky?!? ~ I was driving to work very early Monday morning (about 3:40 a.m.) and the sky was all big with a small half moon. Well all of a sudden I see directly in front of me and over the road a flashing light streak across the sky and I'm thinking "Holey Moley what the heck was that!!?" It reminded me of a firework going across the sky but it was way too high. This was about 3:40 am and I'm thinking it's either space junk re-entering the atmosphere or a meteorite but Wow what an incredible sight!! It was visible and moving fast but a lot slower and lower than a regular shooting star. It was in the sky for 2-4 seconds, the end turned green and then it just disappeared suddenly. I tried to get what it looked like in a digital painting but it was a lot further below the moon, the trail longer and not as wide as the one I did here. "Night flash" (and no I promise I wasn't seeing things LOL! Has anyone else seen anything like this before or have any idea what it could be??

ACEO's ~ I have been having so much fun painting the little 'uns'! Here's 2 I got finished last night. One is called 'Spookyscapes2 fire ghost' and the other 'Fall garland with blue flower' abstract. Both of these are available at www.artbyus.com. I put these on a piece of cardboard I've been painting things on and it made a pretty neat frame for the paintings! I got the picture out on the back deck this evening. Wow the temperatures have been lovely the last couple of days here. It's cool at night but crisp and nice in the day with all the leaves turning those gorgeous colors. I love this time of year but I'm dreading the freezing cold of winter!

Purple-Blue of the Fourth Dimension ~ This is a digital painting I did tonight but I've also been making good progress on some acrylic paintings. I'll get some photos of them tomorrow so I can post them in here. I always love it when the art muse comes to visit and I get in a frenzy of painting. I have paint tubes laying everywhere, boxes with containters of paint laying around everywhere, paint spots all over the place, messy brushes in my big jar of water, ahhh I love it!!

Spiral Abstract Pumpkin ACEO ~ I've been having so much fun doing the Halloween ACEOs! Here's another big pumpkin which I did really quick last night. I had one that didn't look good so I just painted him over top of it. I guess he doesn't look very scary, mostly happy and silly!

SPOOKYSCAPES 1 ~ ACEO 2 1/2 X 3 1/2 inches acrylics and sharpie on medium weight unstretched canvas (available now at www.artbyus.com at link here on lower right... Oh Yea I'm getting in the mood for Halloween! I love this time of year, it's so darn fun! I love how the days start getting a little shorter every day, the nights get that crispy cooler feeling with the stars shining a little clearer and brighter, the leaves start turning into glorious reds, yellow and orange and woohoo the scary movies start coming on TV! Also lots and lots of yummy candy that I buy every year for Trick-or-Treating and get to eat it myself since we live out in the country and we rarely ever have any Trick-or-Treaters! Although a few of the little goblins coming to the door would be fun, I miss that part of living in the city.
