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.

29 Faces in Feb 2013: DAY 2


Abstract, Colorful, and sorta kinda wild!  I love painting these little cards, and using watercolor and pen and lots of bright colors.  Day 2 of 29 Faces.  More to follow.  I need challenges and contests to keep me inspired, I guess.  And it's fun.  ACEOs and ATCs are so much fun to paint, and so much less stressful than a larger work. I have painted almost 300 now. Some I traded (ATC) and some I sold (ACEO), but they are all originals, one of a kind, not prints.  I may make prints eventually, but for now, not.

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 like this piece called Big Lips and they are. :) Great colors!

  2. I love the freedom of these two ACEO's. I have never tried to make one like this. Nice to meet you through 29 Faces. This is my first time trying the challenge. I just started faces in November.

  3. I love your style! Another brilliant face.

  4. Thanks Gloria, Tammy and Linda! This challenge is really fun.
