Hopefully this blog will inspire you to have confidence in your creative abilities and give you courage to learn and try new things. Try something NEW. It could be just what you need to make you a better artist, or a better person. My latest obsession is Amigurumi Crochet, and my favorite subjects right now are Hollywood Icons, Famous People and Characters.

Day 19 of 30 in 30

Day 19 of 30 Paintings in 30 Days:
"Walking the Dog" - ACEO
For sale at Daily Paint Works:

So, a family decides to put on their finest garb and take the family pooch for a stroll - during Mardi Gras.  I know it's a stretch, but I want to keep with the theme.  The bright colors, costumes and such make me FEEL like Mardi Gras.  Done in loose watercolor and pen.

ACEO refers to the size - 2½” x 3½” - also called an ATC or artist’s trading card. Signed by artist. Complete contact info on back - comes in a protective sleeve.


  1. Love the title and you can feel the action. Again great colors.

  2. Thanks, Sharon! So many things just "happen" like the texture in the green dress. The paper "mottled" and now it looks like tapestry material. I love those happy accidents.
