Day 21 - The Value of Practice

Day 21 – The Value of Practice

After a slow day yesterday, today’s been busy. Not so much for my own art – I managed to finish off only this little ACEO – but also because it was my art group meeting. It’s important to see what other artists are doing, to see new ideas and get recharged. My art group had […]

Fun Little Doodles

Fun Little Doodles

So, I’ve been having fun playing with my little mini watercolor palette. Here are some colorful little doodles that I’ve been doing. They are ACEO size (2.5 x 3.5 inches) on watercolor paper. I doodle the black lines first with a Pitt brush pen – the pen is very versatile and the ink is waterproof. […]

A Kind Gesture

A Kind Gesture

I had an unexpected moment of kindness today. The Clothesline Art Show was today in Hudson. When I stopped at the show this afternoon to work my shift, the members of my group told me that a family had been in, and one of their daughters had spent some time looking at my drawings. She […]


Mini’s in a BOX

Mini’s in a BOX

The Ohio Collage Society Show, 3.5 x 2.5, opened tonight at the BOX Gallery in Akron. It’s a show of small collages by members of the society; see it before it closes on 4/16. It’s a terrific show with somewhere between 75-100 works. Most artists submitted 3 or 4 pieces and they’re grouped together, giving […]

This collage is made of bits of torn paper with some machine stitching along the bottom. The large white threads are embedded in the blue paper along the bottom. They became exposed when I tore the paper into strips and I liked how they looked. This ACEO will be in the Ohio Collage Society show […]

Moon Rise

Moon Rise

I’ve been working with collages lately. This one is made from images cut from magazine photos and store flyers, except for that bit of green along the bottom. It’s made by coating a magazine photo with several layers of acrylic matte medium. When fully dry, I soaked it in water for a few minutes to […]

ATCs / ACEOs

ATCs / ACEOs

What are ATCs or ACEOs? The names stand for Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) and Art Cards, Editions, and Originals. They are small but complete works of art. They were originally created to be traded amongst other artists, similar to baseball cards. Now, they are sought after by collectors and bought, sold, traded by afficionados around […]
