Treasure Hunt

6x6 oil on panel

I've been so frustrated with my work lately. Not really coming up with anything worthy of posting... until this one. I'm happy with this painting. :o)


I just finished 18 ACEO (Art Card Originals and Editions) cards for the Main Gallery 404. ACEO or Artist Trading Cards are miniature (2 1/2" x 3 1/2") works of art that are sold or traded. Quite a few artists are submitting these cards in different media for the September First Friday that is coming up. They asked for 20 to 30, but this was all I could get done with everything else going on.

These, along with many others, will be for sale at Main Gallery 404 in
Bloomington IL. starting September 4.

My goal with these paintings was to play with brushwork and push color. I got better at it as I went on. Keeping it fun!

I am finally back in my studio after a short break. I can't believe it's been a month since I last posted a new painting. It's not been a break really, since I have been painting walls, baby sitting, a weekend art festival and the Tall Grass Exhibition. I actually think getting back to my studio is the break! 

I had fun with color in this painting. And of course it's one of my favorite subjects!
