St Patrick's Day ACEOs and Floral Postcards for PPF

The theme for this week in 30 ACEOs in 30 Days FB Group is . . . 

All things Green and Irish. The Flower Fairy was a Twofer, since I also added her to the album in another FB group. She was painted from a reference photo. The Leprechaun on the bottom was done at Christmas and he is a nutcracker, but also qualifies for this theme. Since he has not sold yet, I included him. See these and 150 more of my paintings in my EBAY STORE.

I was not much inspired in my watercolor class this week, because they were doing collages and gluing, in order to "save" failed paintings. I just chop mine up into ATC cards!  So I took out some 4x6 watercolor postcards that my grandson had given me for christmas and painted loosey goosey flowers. I like them, especially after they are matted and ready to frame in a 5x7 size. 

They would make a nice grouping in plain black frames! Very colorful, don't you think? I listed them on Ebay and Daily Paint Works.

Here is a 9x12 Abstract, done with Rice Paper and Watercolor. A mixed media collage done in class this week. Not my favorite, but it was interesting. Lots of texture. I don't like to glue very much.
