TREE TRIO ~ Of ACEO's. (from right to left, The Secret Tree of Mirth, The Little Tree Picker, and The Tree of Hearts. I had already finished and listed the one on the left on e-bay last week but I finished up 2 more last night and today to list. I've been having lots of fun doing these and the tiny details were painted with a pointy toothpick and little sliver of paper because my smallest brush was too big! Yes, The Little Tree Picker is one that I cut off from a larger work (posted below) because I wanted an odd number of trees in there plus, it made for the 3rd one in the trio!

These are lovely Lynette. Good choice to go with a trio of trees. I would not be surprised it they are all snapped up at once.
Again, these would be good larger.

Very effective! The little tree picker looks like someone dressed in crinolins with legs showing below them! Kind of magical and fun and frolicky!

You must paint a picture a day!
Can't say I write a poem a day. Guess I could if I made it a priority.

they look fantastic but are you using a magnifiying glass when you use the toothpick? Let us know how they do when you put them all up for sale.

Thank you Jan, yep I am thinking of doing some larger. I still have to get to Michaels to get some 300 lb. wc paper though. I'm thinking maybe 5 x 7 would work good.
Hi and thank you m.o.i. LOL it could be crinolines! Heck I couldn't do a painting a day, I'm lucky to do one a week! I had more free time lately since the holidays are over and taking advantage of it!
Helloo JB and thanks so much! No I don't use a magnifying glass, I just have to take my glasses off and I can see perfectly up close. I listed 3 three of them on e-bay and have 'watcher's and the first has lots of views, but no bids yet. :o

These are awesome, Lynette!! I like things in 3s too.

LynClay said...

Thank you Cyn...Three seems to be a good number! I guess odd numbers of things make for a better composition, or that's what I've read.
