and even more ACEOs

Well, when they say these little art trading cards are addictive, they aren't kidding! I've been doing nothing else for weeks in my spare time. They are selling pretty well, which is encouraging me. I truly love making art and if the hobby can spread some joy AND pay for itself, I'm thrilled. No real money to speak of, but supporting the habit is a good thing.

This week I am excited to list the first dog paintings. I adore dogs and am too allergic to have one. If you are a reader of my blog, you will know that I researched dogs over the past year and got a rescue poodle for a companion last September. After six weeks I was having life-threatening allergic reactions and had to give up my new, much-loved companion. I'm still angry that I can't have even the most loving, non-allergenic dog, but I enjoyed doing these paintings that might share my love of the critters with others.

Also listed this week is a series of Fern paintings. It is almost spring and the ferns will soon be unfurling in the shady corners of the yard. I can't wait.

Click here for one of the Fern Series. You can click on "view seller's other items to see the rest of my listings.

And finally, this week I listed a second Orchid series. Orchids are so amazingly versatile. Oh, how I wish I could grow them! There really isn't time for that right now, so I'll just have to look at pictures of them and do studies like these.

Go to one of the orchid listings here.
These things are simply spectacular!

I'd also like to thank some of my regular blog readers for coming over to ebay and actually buying my art cards! Thank you so very much for your support. I hope you enjoy the cards - I send them off to you with a small piece of my heart attached.

They are so pretty, it's hard to not buy them all!

You should do more lily of the valley. Those are one of my faves. And gladiolus flowers. And and and...kitties!!!

Lol sorry. I just wish I were even half so talented!
