The Jewels of Autumn

Autumn Jewels
by Rita Squier

Original Watercolor Painting

ACEO - Art Card
Size: 2.5 x 3.5 inches

The leaves are beginning to turn their gorgeous autumn colors here in Upstate New York. Pretty soon they will be falling from the trees and we will soon be outdoors raking them all up into large piles to play in and then cart away.

This little ACEO and more can be found in my Etsy Shop.

Have a great day!

I love it when... ACEO artist wants to help a good cause! 

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 came across this beautiful original watercolor painting titled "Color Composition" yesterday and fell in love with it. It is by EtsyACEO member artwatercolor.

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."

I really like her style of painting, I really find them unique and interesting. I hope you will take a look at all of her artwork that she has for sale in her Etsy shop.

Sweet September Saturdays by Artist/Designer/Photographer Glenna Normyle

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 you can see this aceo and others I have created.

During the summer and fall we spend a great deal of time in the Adirondack mountains in upstate New York. Traveling and hiking through the woods has inspired many of my watercolor paintings.

Take a hike on a Forest Path. This little ACEO can be found in my Etsy Shop along with more Adirondack and nature inspired watercolor ACEOs.
