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 Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Frida Kahlo, and Mermaids.

Alcohol Inks, Pebbles, Rocks and Stones, PPF

Alcohol Inks - Painting Pebbles, Rocks and Stones 

My latest obsession (yes, a new one) is alcohol ink. It's a fussy medium, and I am learning to get some control with it now. These are two of my latest ACEO AI (that's short for Alcohol Ink) paintings of Pebbles, Rocks and Stones under water. I watched a Youtube video and sort of followed instructions, but did my own thing. I am using Photo Paper for a surface to paint on. It works pretty well. I think it is about the same as Yupo.



We also had Dragons for a theme on ACEO TW on October 1, 
and I made 4 really scary ones. Available in my Ebay Store.
They started out as acrylic pours and I embellished them.




And a little ACEO watercolor I did for a challenge on DPW.

  4. Beautiful! I have such a hard time painting ACEOs. The surface is just too small I guess. Yours are awesome. Have a wonderful week. Big Hugz, Rasz
