Back to it

Once again I begin with apologies for my absence. This is becoming a bit dull of me lately. It's been a while since I've had the opportunity for a flurry of activity (I keep getting called into work on my days off), but at last I'm on a roll. Today at least. I've been making some ACEOs, as well as popping out for lunch and spending time photographing. I want a medal now, or one of those little trophies you put on the mantlepiece. Oh and I'll need a mantlepiece too, while you're at it.

So without further ado, here's the fruit of this latest Tuesday off.







I've mounted and framed them this time. They're the little cheap frames from Ikea, with mounts that I cut myself, so it's a really inexpensive, yet pretty way to display them. Next time I go to Ikea I think I'll buy a whole bunch of these and start selling the ACEOs fully presented. I think they'd look lovely on a desk or bedside table, and I reckon I could do the whole lot with postage for about £10 or £11. I don't think that's bad for an original artwork.

  1. Nope, that's pretty good for a lovely little bit of art! The first, the third and the final picture are my favourites (but don't ask which is my best favourite, or I'll probably burst with trying to make a decision). I like the green ink wash on the last picture though... it's really quite fab.
    The mantlepiece and the trophy? Hmm... Does that mean I get one too - I did some stuff this week and I just finished a nice guest book for my shop... Got the mantlepiece, so the trophy is all I need!
    Have a good week - hope you don't have to go into the-other-job on your next day off either.
