Out With the Old......

Happy 2012 friends! I hope that the holiday season and the first few days of the new year have been good to you. I am happy to be back home in Carbondale after 2 trips up north in as many weeks.

I spent today cleaning my house, and decided to do the same in my Etsy shoppe.  I've placed several of my older original ACEO's on sale. Most of these pieces are from my long running Floral Improv collection and feature cut magazine and ink embellishments.  Originally $20.00, these little beauties are now priced at $12.00. That's 40% off of the original price! Woo.

ACEOs (Art, Card, Edition, Originals) measure just 2.5" x 3.5" and make great gifts. Go. Buy! 

Ta-Ta for now.

Starting Off Small

It finally feels like summer.

My schedule has cleared and my days are mostly my own. I'm slowly working my way back into my summer routine and art making. I find it difficult sometimes to regain my art "mojo" after a long absence from creating. I decided not to push myself too hard, but just start small.

Over the last week or so, I've made these little floral ACEO's.  They are nothing totally innovative or groundbreaking, just something I know and understand. I do feel the need change things up and try something new. Unfortunately, I don't know quite what that is yet. Until then, I'll keep plugging away, and it will come to me.

Tried and True is available for sale in my Etsy shoppe. The others will be up for sale shortly.

Try. Everyday. An ACEO

2.5" x 3.5" mixed media on Bristol Board.

This is my first piece in about a month.  I feel a little rusty, but I'm glad to be back to work. 

Just like always, I just happened upon the text I included here while flipping through a magazine. The words I clipped seem like a good mantra for me right now. I'll try, everyday, just to do a little something artistic for myself.

What is your current mantra?
