Easter Lamb

Sunday, March 23rd, 2008

My thoughts on painting a lamb became a reality and this is the sixth painting in a week, I’m really enjoying working with pastels again but wonder if the public like pastel ACEO’s, time will tell whether I stick to pastels for a while or revert back to acrylics.

This is in my opinion a lovely cheerful painting for Easter.


More ACEO’s

Saturday, March 22nd, 2008

The first one is of a white West Highland Terrier (I used pastels again for this little fellow), they seem to be very popular as pets at least three of my neighbours have them.


The second is of a little Shih-Tzu dog called Lucy, resting on a cosy cushion


and lastly another cutie, this is Charlie a King Charles Cavalier puppy:


As it’s Easter I’m thinking of painting a lamb, it’s just that at the moment, a thought.

Happy Easter!

Back to Art.

Thursday, March 20th, 2008

After a very long spell away from creating art, I’m finally back at my easel.
The last year or so has not been the easiest of times for me and my family, but now things are beginning to look more positive and at last I feel creative once more, and what better way to start than with some art cards ~ or ACEO cards as they are popularly called.
I decided to return to pastels, my all time favourite medium, pastels being such a lovely medium to use for painting animals, my first painting is of “Emma”, I called her this because of her emerald green eyes. You can find her for sale on Ebay, I hope you like her enough to add to your collection.


So, being somewhat pleased with the portrait of Emma, I decided to paint another view of her, again an ACEO, these little works of art are just 2.5″x 3.5″. They take patience to create, but the finished result is worth it, see for yourself ~


I’ve created another three cards, which I’ll post tomorrow, it’s time for a nightcap and sleep now.
