That's us half way through the Easter holidays here and surprisingly I've had a fair bit of time to do some painting. I've been doing a mixture of A5 pieces and also some ACEOs, I really like working on a small scale I have to admit. I'll share with you the smaller ones today and I'll probably pop back later in the week to show some of the larger artworks.
This little lady is called Dance Through Life and I painted her on a 4 x 4 inch square (approx) I don't usually paint on squares. I thought she looked like she had been twirling and just stopped.
I created two new ACEOs - the first is called Thought Bubbles, I think I always feel like I go through every day in a bit of a haze, I like the abstract shapes and mark making surrounding my ladies to give a feeling of this, I'm sure I'm not the only one - I hope!
The Second ACEO is called Mind Alight, it's about ideas coming into your head, I think the pink swirls look a bit like fireworks.
I've put these ladies into my etsy shop at a reduced rate for a limited time. I've also been quite busy this week on custom orders and hopefully there will be a blog post coming very soon to show these, I don't like to blog about custom orders until they are with their new owner and I know they are 100% happy. I like getting custom orders because I love to have a bit of a brief to work to and it's always a bit of a challenge to put my own style with the ideas someone has in their mind.
