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 28 of 30 in 30

"The Crowded Street" ACEO

For Sale on DPW: 

People line the streets during Mardi Gras, so I probably would not like it. I hate crowds. But here is my version of a crowded street. This was painted entirely with my left non-dominant hand, including the liner work and my signature, for a challenge here on DPW. The washes, which I do first, were pretty easy, but trying to control the liner pen with my left hand was quite a challenge. Oh, that's right. It was a CHALLENGE. I have been trying for a loose, free style, and this actually does not look that different from the others I have done for 30 paintings in 30 days. In fact, I think I like the scribbly look somewhat.   Could be a bunch of kids playing Ring Around The Rosie, or whatever.  It's kinda abstract.

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. I'm pretty impressed with how much life this piece has for such a small size and for using your non dominant hand! Love your use of color. :)

  2. Thanks, Crystal. I love it, too. Sometimes I am not satisfied with my work, but these little paintings are so much fun, and so satisfying!
