Graphite Sketch of the grands for Christmas

One of the things I did for my kids for Christmas was do graphite pencil sketches of my Grandchildren for them.  Each one was unique to each family. Hopefully they enjoy them :)

Spirit Wolf - 4" x 6" acrylic painting

Spirit Wolf 4" x 6" acrylic

Funny that is it bigger than I usually paint.  In fact I had trouble adjusting to the larger size :)....Anyway, I wanted to try the wolf silhoette, and wasn't sure I could do it an a smaller scale.  I make try an aceo size yet.  This one is listed as always on Ebay here

ACEO December theme week.....Christmas traditions

Theme week is Christmas Traditions.
The above painting is a 2.5" x 3.5" acrylic  aceo titled "Christmas Morning" and is my rendition of people going to church first thing in the morning.

 This painting is my rendition of the old fashioned tradition of Caroling.  We don't see it much these days.  We did used to have carolers come by when we lived in another town when my kids were small, but haven't seen it for quite a few years now.  A 2.5" x 3.5" acrylic titled "Caroling"

 This last one is my favourite, only because I rarely use coloured pencils.  They are really out of my comfort zone.  I used highlighted acrylics with this also, so it's more a mixed  media.  Titled "Deck the Halls"....2.5" x 3.5"

All 3 are listed on Ebay to qualify for this month's Theme Week competition.  You will find them listed on Ebay here
