Pink Lily ACEO up for auction

"Pink Lily"
2.5" x 3.5"
Coloured Pencil

My drawing, "Pink Lily" is up for auction on Ebay. Click here to bid!

ACEO stands for "Art Cards, Editions and Originals". These cards have one main rule - they are 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches - the size of a trading card.

ACEO's are small works of art that are more affordable than larger artworks. I hope to create many more ACEO's in the future!

Can anyone name the flower?

I just finished working on this coloured pencil drawing of a flower, but I don't know what kind it is! My sister, Kristi, took the photograph that I used as reference. If anyone could tell me, I would appreciate it! Thanks!

Photo Contest

So I've decided I'm going to hold a photo contest. I got the idea from Karie-Ann Cooper who is holding a wildlife photo contest. Basically I'll hold the contest for a couple of months and I'll ask that people send me any photos that they may have of a certain subject. I'm thinking that I'd like to do a horse, but I'll let you know for sure at a later date. I have limited access to animal pictures so I'm hoping my readers have some good shots.

At the end of the contest, I'll pick my favourite photo and I'll draw or paint it. The winner will receive a signed print of the winning artwork. I'll get into the rules when I actually start the contest, but the main rules will be that you own the copyright to the photo(s) that you send me, and I will own the copyright to the artwork.

So don't start sending me photos yet, but soon!

Still Around

Hi all,
I just wanted to write a quick note to say I'm still here! Since finishing my last commission, I felt I needed a bit of a break from drawing. I don't plan on taking a long break, but I just need to figure out what I'm going to do next. I'm kind of thinking that I'll draw a horse next, but I'm not sure what medium I'll be working in. I also have half an oil painting of a lion done that I started during my oil painting class over a year ago. I'll get back into it soon, but for now I'm enjoying the lack of commission pressures!

Another thing keeping me busy is that I've started an exercise program called P90X. I won't really get into it here because you may not be interested. If you are interested, I've started a new blog, sort of as a diary to document my progress through the program. I figure that I'll HAVE to finish the program if I tell lots of people I'm doing it! So feel free to follow along if you like!
