Saying Good-bye to 2007

So...this is how I feel about 2007.
I was so anxious for 2006 to end...I was certain that 2007 HAD to be better.
I hadn't counted on spending most of the year in is how I've felt, most of the year.
I'm better now. I finally feel like creating again. I have really liked many of the pieces I've done over the past couple of months.
I always enjoyed doing the abstracts...but, these little pieces have done way more for my spirit and healing. It's like..if I'm feeling sad...I just do a piece with this sad little guy...and then I get to feeling 'sorry' for him...not so much for myself!
I didn't find the same 'theraputic results' with the abstracts.
So, as I 'say good-bye' to 2007...with all of it's ups and downs ...I'm not looking for any 'miracles' in 2008...just a lot of hard work, new adventures and some of my best art yet!!

The Voices In My Head

My painting, 'Inside My Asylum', is part of a new Etsy Treasury...'The Voices In My Head'.
There is some really great art in this 'Treasury' by other Etsy artists.

A Holiday Break...

I am going to take a 'holiday break'....meaning a break from work...not from the holidays.
I haven't thought much about the Christmas Season or the New Year...that upsets me a bit.
I do so dislike the commercialism that has become the turns the little ones a bit greedy.
As for me...I would rather take a poor unfortunate family and make their lives a bit brighter. I believe that should be what the season is about.

I made it in to an Etsy Treasury

Wow! I was very surprised to see that I had made it into one of the Etsy Treasurys.
I love this little guy...I named him 'Lumpy' when I created him a few months ago. I think he is so sweet...the painting is titled...'Don't Run With Scissors'.
Here is the link to the Treasury...

Thursday, December 13, 2007 I'm putting my experimentations up until next year...

Things are just way too hectic to try to experiment...successfully...with anything at this particular time of the year.
So...I'll do a few more original ACEO's and small paintings..then call it a Year!
This little guy is newly listed on an original ACEO painting.

What do you think....

I spent my week-end experimenting. I soooo wished I could get some of these pieces on...before Christmas.
But, alas...I'm running out of time...and my experimentation is not yet done.
Well...this little guy looks person. He's a bit washed out and reflective in this photo. I'm having a bit of a problem getting good enough pictures to give an accurate example of what this little magnet actually looks like.
I think he's darling...but...what do you think?

I'm Experimenting...

I'm experimenting. Not with these little folk...with something other than ACEO's or prints. It's probably not the best time of the year to be doing experimentation...what with the holidays and all. But, to be honest...some days I just feel 'all out of ideas'...for new paintings...even little ACEO paintings. I've got several ACEO paintings that have never been listed because, I'm not satisfied enough with them.
I don't like to be I'm experimenting.
Be sure and check see if my experiment 'worked out'.

I think I've found a new 'character'....

I really love this sad little ragdoll...I didn't intend to do anything further with him and ended up doing a new piece, with him in a tree swing.

I plan to develop him into something more. Not sure what yet...but, I think he is so sweet...and so sad...surely I'll figure something out!

Taking a minute...

I'm taking a quick minute to post something. Literally, that's about all the time I have to spare these past few days. They have been so hectic..and I have been so busy.
This little guy was listed in Rustic Goth's Etsy Shop today...the original has sold...but, I do have some Limited Edition ACEO prints available.
I plan on doing quite a few pieces with this little guy...he is one of my favorites so far.

NEW PIECES ---- Coming SOON!

I've got some new pieces COMING SOON! I'm hoping to start listing some brand NEW Original ACEO's on Sunday.
They're drawn out...I just need to get them painted.
This little gal is one of the NEW pieces I am going to list...she's actually an OLD new piece. I painted her a couple of months ago...then, I 'lost' her...along with several others. I put her away, for "safe" keeping and then couldn't find her.
