New ACEOs and a Giveaway



Hi folks! I finished a couple more mermaid ACEOs. Lately it seems like all I do is mixed media paintings, and it was nice to see how my work has changed from a year ago. The scan doesn't do them justice, they are very colorful and sharply detailed, and I am happy with them. For those who haven't heard of ACEOs, they measure 2.5 x 3.5" which is the size of a playing card. So in other words, itty bitty artworks, lol. What a difference a year makes, I now have to put on reading glasses to paint the details!


Now for the details of my giveaway. Since my birthday is next Tuesday, I will be offering a chance to win an original painting. Up for grabs is this shabby girl, on 6 x 12 piece of wood. I used lots of media on her, and the background is bees waxed. There is lots of texture and layering going on and she even has a necklace of Swarovski crystal beads.
She is a prim little princess on a shabby background, and if you would like a chance to win her, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post. Please make sure I have a way to reach you if you do win.

I will use a random number generator at approx. 9pm Sept 29th to choose a winner.
Good luck, and thank you for helping me celebrate my birthday!(shhhh, my age is a secret!)
