My brand new venture into 'Artist Trading Cards' !

My brand new  venture into 'Artist Trading Cards'!  (2.5"x3.5". These are almost real life size.)
I started sketching with pencil, painted with acrylic, then covered them in gel medium to seal it all .
I am really happy with the results. All of these cards have been traded. To set up a custom swap contact me!
I am also making ACEO's
What's an ACEO? It's an “Art Card Editions and Originals”. These affordable little works of art measure only 2.5" x 3.5" and are perfect for collecting, framing, and gifting!

1930's Shirley Temple Doll and Steiff bear.

These are a few of my favorite things.(Including the wooden mushrooms.)
I have been thinking about painting still life this week. I have not started, but I am thinking about it. ; )
I pulled these out, dusted them off, and took some pics in the back yard. I am going to work on still life groupings, and photograph them. Ideally I will paint from life!
