Here are the latest additions to my ACEO collection. It's slowly growing and now that my paper has arrived (YAAY) I can think about putting them on EBAY, Folksy and Etsy. Crikey it's nerves wracking and I just seem to be throwing more and more money at it in the hope that it will start to pay! It's so good to read about other bloggers and artists who are making money by doing something they love and maybe then I'd stop feeling so guilty about sitting painting for most of the day. It does feel decadent! Mind you, today I also got stuck into the ironing (at 6.30) and at lunchtime, had a really good hoover around, so the house doesn't look much like a pigsty now! Next it's time for the kitchen to be beaten into submission and I'm cooking a fish pie for tea as we have loads of potatoes to use up (the 5kg I planted at the field).
Right, here they are
Merlin (as a Unicorn)
and Toffee (as himself).
Also, while I remember (my head is so full of paintings!) I mentioned a book clear out. Here is the first one, it was a great read, although not a huge amount happened. What I enjoyed was the peaceful stroll through the lives of these wonderful ladies, from the late forties up to the current time. I would recommend it, although I won't be reading it twice.
The second book is 'Second Nature' by Alice Hoffman. It was fantastic and not at all what I was expecting. I loved it, but again won't read it again as I have too many books and not much space. I'm de-cluttering dahlings, so the first one to shout can have a book :)
