Red Buck Deer ACEO Oil Painting

Wednesday, January 17th, 2007

It’s been an interesting day. Instead of listing all the things I did today, let’s just get to the good stuff…the painting!Red Buck Deer ACEO oil painting

Today I’ve uploaded a listing to Ebay for my ACEO of a red deer. Haven’t thought of a good title yet, so I’d welcome suggestions.

ACEO (Art Cards Editions & Originals) are the size of standard trading cards; 2.5″ x 3.5″ in size.

The bidding starts at $9.95. If you consider that folks often spend several dollars on a massed produced greeting card, an original oil painting on 185 lb. acid free, gessoed paper is a real bargain!

You could be the lucky owner of this little gem, but only if you bid!

See this Red Deer on Ebay.

Thank you.

Apparently Only Women Read Instructions

Saturday, January 13th, 2007

My son was watching an Anime where only women were pilots. I asked him why that was, and he replied, “Apparently only women read the directions”.

Today, instead of painting, I was a Woman. I read the instructions on upgrading WordPress.

The upgrade was pretty easy. All I had to do was follow the step by step instructions. I am very glad I did. There was a trick step called disabling plugins, that I hadn’t thought about. The task took some time though. I’m a believer in backups. When I finished the upgrade, it occurred to me that maybe there was a plugin to slow down spammers. Then more time was taken up with the search for a plugin and installation. Hopefully, the time spent on this upgrade will save me hours of work and aggravation of deleting spam from the moderation list.

I’ve also added a couple of nifty search features. The one for wearable art will take you to Cafepress to view fun art from thousands of artists. The other is a search through Amazon because, afterall, maybe you’ll be reminded of some great tunes or a book that you’ll want to acquire.

Another 20 inch x 16 inch oil painting is planned for tomorrow. I’ll blog it as a Work In Progress so you can watch the painting unfold. See you then!

Wearable Art Now Available From My Oil Paintings

Tuesday, January 9th, 2007

Today I decided to make my art wearable. My first experimental piece is from my White Cow ACEO. I’ve added comment lines to the art to make it a bit more interesting as wearable art. Could be the ultimate Battle Of The Sexes tag line!
