What could be more relaxing than a good book and a glass of wine?
This is a 2.5” x 3.5” inch ACEO Limited Edition Print (50) of an oil painting from my series of 26 original Still lifes.
In many of my still life paintings I use a wine glass as the main character to personify the human spirit. These paintings are about the simple joys of life, leisure, and contemplation.
This ACEO Print and more from the series are available from my Etsy shop at: http://DanielMontoya.etsy.com
I have also created a simple and affordable DIY Tutorial on my blog for ACEO fans on how to safely frame and display them at: http://DanielMontoyaStudio.blogspot.com
Thank you for taking the time to visit! and please try to check out all of the other wonderful and inventive ACEO artists on the ACEtsy Team!

Here is a fun little creation from WorldOfMoments. 100% of this purchase will go the Dockery Foundation. This is a print of her original painting called "Are You Aware?"
Here is part of her description: This ribbon is purposefully made to be just a little bit different, just a little bit un-perfect. Because in real life, every case of autism is just as different.
Way to make a difference, Mel!
This makes me want to think about ways I can make a difference, too. How about you?

I asked Anca to tell me a little bit about how she did it. "I was on a holiday when I painted this watercolor and was relaxing sketching in the garden. There are two weeks each summer when that area is full of dragonflies and it's magical. I know the subject may seem a bit cruel but the real subject is the beauty of nature, in all of its forms. I started sketching the dragonfly with a small brush and then added the spider web background to complete the composition. Then I just played with colors and textures. It took longer to complete then my other watercolor paintings, because of all the hues and details, but I'd say it was worth it."

Thank you very much for inviting me to write about ACEO's and ETSY. As we pass from one season to another you can really feel it and certainly see it. This new season Fall 2009 is just starting for us here in New England. Cooler nights herald the beginning of the Fall season for us. I am also very much swayed in my creativity at this point. I have been creating ACEO's with Fall, back to school, owl, bird and Christmas themes. Some ideas for ACEO's come to me and they are so simple in design. This Hoot Owl Aceo I made was simple to make and fun. A few months ago I had ordered a package of various iron on items, beautful embellishments etc...from a fellow Etsian. When I received my order I took one look at this owl and I said to myself, very cute, unique I really would like to preserve it on aceo cardstock to share with someone else. Enjoy! It is available for sale at my shop Glenna's Garden. By visiting www.gnormyle.etsy.com you can see this aceo and others I have created.

I can’t help it… the island got into my blood. I want to move there and just keep soaking in that healthful island living!
Well, still being there in heart has drawn out a of me, paintings, inspired by the beauty there. I completed these ACEO’s recently – all of which are for sale in my Etsy shops (or click the picture)
I totally and completely fell in love with Plumeria's! They were blooming everywhere. The variety of colors intrigued me and the smell is intoxicating! One of these Plumeria paintings includes native symbols and pen work in the background. The other is a bud just opening in the early morning!

Also known as 'mother of pearl' or 'abelone' and probably many other names, this beautiful shell is my inspiration for my latest aceo. They come in various sizes and have a lovely shimmering appearance. This little one in the photo is from my local beach and is the smallest intact one I have found. Compare it to the size of my aceo beside it.
You can check out my shop, NewCreationz for more pictures of this paua shell aceo and others too. Hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy creating them!

I am sure this one will have me ooh and awing!
Okay off to the printers now to place my order!
I hope you like my newest creation.

Here is a sweet custom illustration I just finished for a client. To me, this little guy just looks like Robin Hood. I am going to do another in a fedora, a little Bogart action, he he, so we'll see what kind of actor he can be!
It is such a joy to me to share my love of animals with others and to be able to take an image and make some itty bitty fantasy of it!
I hope you enjoy this piece.
