Raphaella's Valentine ACEO featured in FEST Treasury

My ACEO "Heart of a Sailing Vessel" was featured in the Florida FEST Valentine's Treasury! See it here: - Wouldn't it be nice if everyone bought or traded ACEOs as part of their Valentine's Day gifts this year? Here's "Flower" - my latest ACEO creation:

Hi everyone - First of all I'd like to show you my latest aceo, created with acrylic paints over quite a few layers, with the resulting image a sort of abstract moonlit sea scape. Secondly I'd like to let you know of a giveaway I am holding. A wonderful fellow Etsian from AmelieJo has featured me on her blog and although she is not an Aceo artist, I thought you may be interested in the prize, which I have shown below - my calla lily aceo. You can find her blog and the details of the competition here at AmelieJo's blog

Mixed Media Madness

Here is a fun piece I did as a precursor to a large commission I've been wracking my brain over for 6 months. I finally got the "recipe" the way I want it. I was really going for the ancient Raku Chinese theme....

This ATC was given in a monthly swap for the eBay Aceo group for December 09.

I will be posting all of them shortly in my Etsy shop!

Enjoy and Have a wonderful weekend.

We are without water for the 7th straight day in our home in Atlanta. I never would have imagined a problem with frozen pipes in the south!

Getting your artwork out there

I have been selling on Etsy for some time now, and have just started to sell my work and get it out there for the world to see. How? I have a fan page on Facebook and Twitter. I am starting to seek out Gallery's locally and make sure that even my  home page on facebook is constantly showing my work. My aceo's and my other Photography. So far it has helped me to get hundreds of hits on my Etsy. I have to admit it was a lot of work at first and keeping  it going is time consuming. But the out come is sales, sales and more  inquiring about my work.


Buy Handmade

I just wanted to add a special thanks to all my etsy friends who supported me during my recent Crisis with My 14 year old when he was hit by the car on 9-11-09. He is out of the wheel chair and really doing well.

Alberta Spirit ACEO Prints

Happy New Year everyone! It seems like ages since I posted here, but I have added a new ACEO print to my herd of horses (as well as renewed ones that expired...things sure lapse over the holidays!)

The original Alberta Spirit is about 11x14", but it's faithfully reproduced here in miniature on glossy photo paper. I use a top of the line HP printer with HP inks for all my ACEO prints.
