A couple of little ones......




'In Bloom'


'Precious Moment'

Hi everyone, this weekend amongst the packing for our trip etc I managed to paint these two little ACEO's. They are in acrylic and are the size of a playing card. I bought a packet of ready cut ACEO cards for acrylic paint a while ago and found them again the other day while I was packing. I'm desperately holding off on packing up my art stuff but by bit it's getting packed away so I'm making the most of every minute I get to paint.

These two are titled 'In Bloom' (pregnant lady) and 'Precious moment' for the mother nursing her baby. I'm loving this type of art and exploring where it will take me, I found it really helpful to work in this small size to try out a few ideas and would like to make them into canvas paintings eventually. I think I could also make a really beautiful glass pendant from both paintings so I shall get on to that. Tomorrow I'm hoping to get the camera back off hubby to take a picture of the two pendants I made from my recent paintings in this style, they really look eye catching as a pendant. So stay tuned as I'm hoping to post that up tomorrow. Happy Sunday everyone!!! :0)

I agree with you about these! They would make wonderful pendants. These figures are so simple yet display such emotion.
