So much to do and SO little time.

I have been missing in action on my Farm/Family blog and here for quite a bit.

Between continuing recovery from my knee surgery, then a severe allergy to newly applied concrete stain at work, and time with my now 17 year old daughter, I just haven't taken the time to post.

Plus I have been creating and selling more of these fun ACEO's. Remember, they are Art Cards, Originals, and Editions.

I had been trying to list some on eBay and get some ready to do a Art 2 Art drops around the Metroplex. Art 2 Art is going to be the neatest thing, but more about that later.

Plus, I haven't posted on Studio Friday or Illustration Friday in ages.

I am going to finally open my Etsy store and use this blog to show more of what I have created. So y'all can buy them directly from me or go through Etsy. I will link that when I have some stuff in there.

Oh and the international Artisans' Exchange that I admin is having a group swap. Sign up ends Feb 25th. Group is now invite only, but I'll let in just about everyone! This is the flickr group that luminate art started. Come join and swap art with us. It's fun. Especially if you can speak portugese.

I do have some new stuff scanned and uploaded to FLickr, so it's time to share.

Okay this ACEO I thought needed a beak or something... well it sold right out from under my pencil... really, so no beak, but I did get a quick scan... you need to squint not the best quality. ACEO= 2.5" x 3.5". Playing card size. Not one of my best ,but the buyer loved it.

This next ACEO may go to eBay... or y'all may buy it for the bargain price of $15.99, which includes S&H and insurance to the US.
International shipping, let's talk.

Cattails and Dragonfly

SOLD on eBay

Now this next one maybe something new to y'all it's called an Art Squared piece.

Dance of the Sunflowers

This is 4"x4", colored pencil on acid free heavy card stock.

SOLD on eBay

As always my art is always a one of a kind original unless I tell y'all differently.

More coming later... I am trying to finish up a Mardi Gras set to list on eBay this Sunday, in time for Fat Tuesday!!

Plus I have been doing some more doodles that instead of a Mother and Child, they came out looking like Geisha's. Almost finished but Sweetie took my GOOD colored pencils out of my bag so I was missing some colors to finish them up.

Have a great weekend, everyone! I do think I will go play Michele's Weekend Game, I miss everyone.

Happy Valentine's Day and EDM# 54

You can't choose who you're gonna love...

Hoppy Valentine's Day

Did this last year, while at work. Do frogs have little tails?

Thought this would work for EDM Challenge #54.... then I reread the directions!

- Draw someone or something you love - and journal about it.

Hmmmmmm... well, darn. I don't really love frogs or turtles... or fantasy lilies. So I guess I need to actually draw something new for this challenge.

I did this in High School. It was great fun. I would love to do this again when I can afford the supplies. Hopefully, I would be much better!!

I have a couple of other pieces I will get around to scanning someday and post.

Plus, I have some sterling silver pieces I made during that same semester.

I could have spent all day in the Art Room during my high school years.... sometimes I came close what with passes out of study hall (yes, back in the OLD days we had a period for doing homework) and skipping PE.
