Paint Party Friday

Just a few more ACEOs...
I hope everyone is healthy and happy this holiday season.

I don't have any holiday-related art to post
(too busy to create anything :)
but I have done some more ACEOs recently.

I've been reading about Elizabeth I, so I must have royalty on my mind.
My princess doesn't have red hair like Elizabeth,
and, unlike Elizabeth, she thinks being a princess is very tiresome.
So many duties, and not enough fun!
It's not easy, you know.

The second ACEO is a re-creation of another piece I did a while ago.
This one:
I haven't decided whether I enjoy recreating a painting...
I think I have too many new ideas fighting to be put on paper.
My thought was to redo something to make it better than the original.
But I like the first one more, oh well.

I'm wishing a wonderful 
Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwaanza, Yule, 
or any and everything you celebrate to everyone!
And an inspiring, healthy, and creative 2012!

Oh, and can't forget,


  1. I love these wee pieces of art! I just started collecting ACEO's and love them!

    Merry Merry!

  2. I love your style of painting. Beautiful aceos. I don't know how you can do such a gorgeous job on such tiny works. It's amazing. Wising you happiness and fun art times in 2012. Faye
