PUDDIN' TOES ~ I just finished this one yesterday and I started out by drawing it in with a fine sharpee magic marker, then painting it in with watered acrylics. It's ACEO size 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches on 140 lb. watercolor paper. One night I was sitting at the computer desk and looked over to see my cat Puddin' laying all stretched out on an afgan on top of the dryer. She had her feet all stretched out and I got a pic of her like that. Now that I look at my little painting though, I see I got some of her toes 'off' in shape and proportion but I thought it just made it look funnier. I had done a larger acrylic painting of this same picture but I laid it aside and still haven't finished it yet.

'Thoughts of Liberty' ~ The second painting in my second to last post doesn't exist anymore. I was going to add just a little more to it but got carried away! Eventually I saw what looked like the Statue of Liberty appearing in there so I went with it...where did that come from?! Have you ever done a painting and something appear that you had not planned or even thought about till it just appeared in your painting? This one is currently listed for auction on E-bay.

BLUE EDGE OF THE UNIVERSE ~ is the title of this one. I worked on this painting today but I've only got the background done so far. OK, I need to get off this computer and finish this one, which I'm going to do in just a few minutes. The weekend is slipping away! This is acrylics on an 8 x 10 inch stretched canvas. I really love doing larger paintings on a stretched canvas and I need to go buy some more. I've been thinking of trying the thicker edge gallery wrap canvas but not sure where to buy them unless I order some on-line. Hope everyone is having a fun weekend! I hear the spring frogs singing tonight and I love that sound! OK it's time to make a moon, tree and spiderweb come alive in this one!

Peach and Brown ~ are one of my favorite color combinations and I already had some of this mixed up from the last aceo I painted, so I did 2 more paintings with the leftover acrylics I had mixed. The larger one is 8 x 10 inches 'Peachy Sunrise' and the aceo one is titled 'Fish Net Fantasy'.
I see the little mystery person is still haunting my flickr badge! Maybe they are just giving me a visit but I wonder if someone else's flickr badge has my photos appearing. I also spotted another mystery photo in my badge and it looks like an upside-down landscape LOL!

Weekend ACEO paintings ~ I did these this weekend and listed them in e-bay. They are both acrylics on watercolor paper and the titles are Beach Sparkle Sunset and Spring Green Fling. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
EEEK my flickr badge over the right of my blog is haunted! I keep seeing a picture appear in there which isn't mine and I've never seen it before. It is of a face with something green (a leaf or scarf) over it. It looks pretty neat but it's nothing I put in my flickr photos and I've been neglecting my flickr for a while now. I guess I need to go in there and see what is going on!??? Who is that little person with the green thing over their face and why are they in my flickr badge???
