More weird moon ramblings so very late at night ~ Being fascinated by that big moon sailing over the back yard I had to take some more pictures with the little digi camera!

At first I thought I had gotten a picture of some mysterious ghost, although I'm not sure I belive in them...then I realized that it was my cigarette smoke that had gotten in front of the camera as I was taking the picture. :) (I think that's what it was anyways!) I was trying to get a photo of the full moon which was in the sky over the garage, to the right.

The moon I was trying to capture, big and orange

...and the moon sailing past our favorite tree in the backyard.

Two new ACEOs this week~ Moon Magic 1 & 2. I've painted 3 pairs of them this week and it's been lots of fun! I paint them at the same time and it's almost like one is coming from my right brain and the other from my left. I could try painting the one on the left with my left hand but I know it would turn out a mess! :)
My friend CHERI (Ladywolf1 from Wetcanvas) has an entry in the Creativity 350 website contest and I know she would appreciate your vote for her Terra BOT 350 entry. Her entry seems to be made from all recycled objects and looks like a robot with lots of personality! This website seems to be all about conserving and the future and health of our planet...I am going to check it out! I voted for her entry here and you can too if you would like:

Between July and December I & II ~ Two more little ACEOs I just finished today. Can you tell I'm getting in a fall/winter mood? I listed one of these in etsy and one in ebay as kind of an experiment.

Tree of Muses 1 & 2 ~ Two little paintings I did this week, ACEO size (2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches) painted in acrylics on 140 lb. watercolor paper. These little trees are inhabited by muses...they dwell there to inspire ones creativity when one walks nearby. I'm hoping they'll inspire me to paint more trees! :) Both are for auction in Ebay this week: click here to bid.

The Buggersnapper ~ He flies, he swims, he jumps, he crawls...and eats up pesky bugs...a fat orange comical creature with big googly eyes! This is an ACEO size (2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches) original ooak painting done in acrylics on 140 lb. watercolor paper. The buggersnappper's wings are painted in shimmery iridescent gold acrylics. Another weird one! :) I put him on ebay to see if he gets a nibble. I hope you all had a great weekend!

My painting without the real rock hanging in front of it...

Babs, my Jack in the Beanstalk plant is growing...slowly but surely!! It has the most pretty delicate colored leaves and stalks. I'm hoping I'll see some flowers and beanpods soon!

I can't believe my 'baby' is 22 years old, boy time flies!

There's a rock hanging in the sky ~ Sooo, I was painting this WIP the other night...I usually place my paintings, if they're little, up on the shelf over the washing machine while I'm on the computer. My light chain over the washer had broken years ago, so I improvised with a round creek rock with a hole in the center. I twisted a long wire which goes up to the light bulb to turn it on and off. Well...every time I place a WIP up on that shelf, I turn on the light to study it while I'm using the computer. Most of the time, that rock is hanging in front of the painting and I have to look around it or put it behind the box of Tide. The other night, I had an inspiration to put the rock inside my painting so I ran in there and painted it in the sky. It's a 5 x 7 inch acrylics on watercolor paper and I'm tempted to just call it done. I don't know what else I could paint in there after the rock in the sky! :)
Ugh, I have been so sick since last Friday night. I think I got either the flu or a bad case of bronchitis. I'm starting to feel like I might survive though, felt much better today. Babs, thank you for that chicken soup, it did make me feel much better!!
