Stormy Daybreak Lighthouse - aceo

Red Sky in the Morning - 2.5" x 3.5" acrylic

I was supposed to be working on my Card for the 2011 aceo deck of playing cards, but somehow this painting formed instead. It's funny how you start out intending to one thing and then the painting sort of takes on a life of it's own and an entirely different painting appears. card today!

You will find this painting listed as usual on Ebay here

ACEO Theme Week "Irish"

Leprechaun Tears - 2.5 x 3.5" Acrylic

ACEO - Art Card and Editions Group of Ebay's March Theme Week is "Irish". I haven't taken part in Theme Week in well over a year, but this month's theme kind of caught my "eye" (no pun intended) LOL An artist friend of mine had commented about a fairy eye that I had painted quite a long time ago and it inspired me to paint this leprechaun one. I like fairies and elves to look a little on the wild side. Not quite human. You will find this painting listed here on Ebay
