Preparing the Canvas

Yesterday got the high density board cut , now need to fine tune and get out the gesso.
Also need to handcut watercolor paper and prepare . Alot of behind the scenes with art preparation before one begins art work. (oops didn't mean to use the word work) kinda takes from it somehow. In any case getting ready to paint.

Completed another aceo card on watercolor paper now listed on consignment at

Have a great weekend.

Some Things Work and Some Don't

Some things work out and some don't . I tried my mini book and another photo experiment and not a go didn't work out.

However, I painted on driftwood and was pleased with the outcome.
I also got inspired and finished an aceo card on watercolor paper. You can find my driftwood painting and my new handrawn aceo card soon at

ACEO (harder than it looks)

Aceo cards they are harder to do than they look.

Inspiration on a small scale , these little minature works of art

take time as well as inspiration. But when one is completed

it is the same feeling of expression as if you painted a big canvas.

I worked on a couple in the past few days , but they need to be fine tuned

I haven't gotten the feeling that they are completed as yet, and since a little

shadow of oneself goes into a piece of art I am not satisfied that they are ready.

So still working on aceo cards this week and by the end of the week I hope that I will feel that they are ready for consignment at

Have a great day!
