The stems from the tomatoes just made me think of little tentacles, reaching out in all directions......

An original ACEO photograph that has been selectively colored for a more dramatic affect. This is Kenya, a very serious but much loved rescued Siamese.

I have been busy working on celtic knotwork design exercises and finally decided it was time to do some ACEO's. This first one is a variation on a design I learned through exercises in Sheila Sturrock's book, "Celtic Knotwork Designs" ......
In this next ACEO I have combined my love of drawing people with my love for celtic designs and come up with my version of "Irish Eyes Are Smiling". The inspiration for this came from a picture of a mountain man my husband was using for one of his projects. When I saw the picture I saw an Irishman in his kilt and holding his shillelagh (prounounced shih-LAY-lee), a far cry from a gruffy looking mountain man wouldn't you say! Anyway, that is the image I saw in my mind and drew.
I have listed both ACEO's in My Etsy Shop today. If you get a chance, stop by and visit!
