NEWEST ACEOS ~ I did them a week ago but finally got a chance to get photos of them this morning and they are all 3 listed on ebay too. These are called 'Dancing in Fire' (a little coal dancing through the embers), 'Deep Blue' (with the fishie), and 'Ice Droplets' (abstract of ice). Whew what a busy week! I am going to get my Christmas decorations down from the attic today and get in the moood but hey it's still early yet, we're not even into December!

DEW DROPS, GLASS PEBBLES, AND A DIRTY WHITE PLASTIC TABLE AT SUNRISE ~ This sure made an interesting surface and while I got some photos of my new ACEOs I saw a great photo op in this scene too! I am thinking this would be a good idea for a new painting!

Mystery Factory ~ One of the strangest sights we see on our annual drive to Kentucky to see my family is the Ashland Oil Refinery. Right after passing the Kentucky state border from West Virginia is this sprawling huge industrial complex with stack after endless smokestacks and big round oil tanks. It looks huge and mysterious and I can't image what all is going on inside the place. I think it's better to see from afar though, as sadly I read that lots of people living nearby have been experiencing health problems. It is an awesome sight at night, lit up by countless tiny white lights and big flames shooting from the the tops of some of the stacks. Experimenting, I took the photo I had taken of the place last summer, put it in photoshop, and pasted it into the horizon of the sunrise painting (below). I may go ahead and paint this in acrylics because I kind of like the way it looks huge and looming and mysterious on the horizon. Anyways I'm mulling this one over.

Whew what a busy week! ~ My part-time job has turned into a full-time job because of Christmas coming and plus doing my art business after work. Well here is my tree painting again (for the third time) but I swear it is finally really finished now and I just varnished it this evening. I titled it 'River Aire' after the River in the U.K. but it is totally from my imagination, I just loved that River name because it sounds so magical to name a body of water after air, I love that! I also did these 2 aceos last weekend and just getting around to taking a photo of them. I'll probably get them listed on e-bay when I get some free time this week. Hope everyone is having a great week!

Sooper Duper Light Show ~ This is a manip off of my acrylic painting so I guess it's a digital painting.

ACEO Madness ~ Wow I have 8 bids on one of my ACEO's that I listed on E-bay!! I can see how a person could get addicted to listing in there as long as the fees don't outweigh the bids. I haven't had this much excitement about an auction ever! I did 5 more and listed them tonight so I'll see how that goes the next few days, keeping my fingers crossed!

RED WHITE AND BLUE ~ Woohoo, a tribute to the U.S.A. on election day! This is a digital painting. :D

Three New ACEOs ~ I put these on e-bay tonight and I'll see what happens with them. I can see how people can get addicted to listing their art on art auctions sites because it's so fun to actually get bids. On e-bay I guess it's more like a gamble since you have to pay to list and don't know if it will sell or not. BRRRRR it's cold outside and I can feel winter is on the way. Has anyone done any Christmas decorating yet? I start playing my Elvis Presley Christmas music after Halloween but everything else has to wait till after Thanksgiving!

Blue Sea Tsunami with Full Moon ~ After finally getting up my nerve to try e-bay last weekend, I sold one in there tonight!! I listed my aceo of the red sky with moon (below) and someone bid and won it tonight plus he also bid on the one above! I was so surprised because of my 0 feedback and didn't think anyone would even see them in e-bay because of so many listings in there but woohoo OMG I'm doing the 'happy dance' tonight cause I made my first sale on e-bay! Maybe it's beginner's luck but I'm sure going to try for it again and I did a couple more aceo's tonight.

SUNRISE (Is it finished???) ~ Did you ever do a painting, let it sit for weeks while you mull over whether it's finished or not? This is 8 X 10 inches on stretched canvas and I had planned on adding some more items on the horizon to make it more interesting but maybe it's finished after all. So officially I'll call this one a WIP but share the progress of it anyways. Well Halloween is over and I hope youall are enjoying all that leftover candy LOL, I know I am!
