'MARSHMALLOW SPARKLE' and 'CELESTIAL WINDOW' ~ I painted these two little ones this weekend and for some reason that marshmallow is starting to look more like a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of a huge strawberry...dessert anyone!? I guess I was in a scarlet/purple mood when I painted these. They are both acrylics on 140 lb. watercolor paper and they are ACEO size 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches and available on Ebay.
I hope everyone had a great weekend! I ended up having a fight with my vacuum cleaner Saturday and I think I won since the vacuum makes this horrible loud noise now. It scared the bleep out of me and I was frantically trying to pull the plug out of the wall because it sounded like it was going to blow up LOL! I guess I'll be shopping for a new one now.

Hi Lynnie! What wonderful colors, I love the first one especially. Looks like crème Chantilly to me, but I don't know what the English word is.

Sorry about your vacuum cleaner, I hope it won't blow up 8-O

Housework can be hazardous to your health, hehe,,,,,,I try to avoid it. ;-)

I'm always in for dessert even though I can't really have any! It looks like a black starfish on it too...maybe chocolate!

I love purple and red.
Your pics always seem like they should be huge and I'm amazed how little they really are. Have you ever done the same type of thing only larger like 2' X 2'or more? They'd be neat too.

Gorgeous color, Lynette!! Pooh, I was outbid on one of your last aceo auctions...I wasn't quick enough.

Thanks Flo! Crème Chantilly sounds really delicious. I just hung a little sign on the vacuum that says "I'm broke" LOL.

Hey Babs thank you and I agree about housework hehe!

Thanks M.O.I. I'm starting a larger one and have it planned out.

Cyn hey thanks so much for the bid and I'm sorry someone outbid you on that one, I was surprised I got more bids the day they ran out!

Hi Janet, thanks so much!

I got into a fight with my footstool. The footstool won :(

Glad you won the hoover fight. What a bore to have to shop for another one though.

Hello and thanks fenny and speaking of ice cream...yummy!
Hi and thank you Angela! Terri it is great to hear from you and hope you and dh are well. I'm going to visit your blog now! Hehe J.B. some of those household items can sure put up a good fight! What did your footstool do, going to go see your blog! btw I want a new vacuum but my husband said he is going to look at it and see if he can fix it first, blah! Thanks for the nice comment on my painting. I'm doing a larger one, now if I could just finish it.
