Finally getting settled back in after MegaCon. My mother & stepdad are here visiting too (in town for an unrelated convention), they'll be here shortly. Busy days!
I've been catching up on commissioned work, custom paintings, three magazine illustrations, stuff like that which slipped by me while I was at MegaCon. I've gotten some ACEO cards made though! It's been awhile since I've made some ACEO cards, so this is a GREAT group, some of my very best and most recent paintings in ACEO format.
Also some exciting news - my artwork was selected to be in this year's "Spectrum" book! Spectrum 15 will be released this fall - it comes out every year and showcases what they consider to be some of the best fantasy & science fiction artwork of that year. I'm thrilled and honoured to be in the book, and will let you all know when it is available. I never know what to expect from Spectrum. I got into Spectrum 11, was rejected from Spectrum 12, got in to Spectrum 13, was rejected from Spectrum 14, and then now I got (yay!) accepted into Spectrum 15. I think odd numbers are lucky for me, and even numbers are bad luck =P I have no idea which picture of mine they picked, I think I sent them 4 or 5 and I don't remember which ones they were! I'll post when they let me know though, I'm very curious. The other artists listed can be found HERE.
Now for the new art - for more info about ACEO cards, how I make them & what they are (basically tiny hand embellished one of a kind canvas prints, trading card sized at 2.5"x3.5" and highly collectable), consult the individual auction descriptions - they are each one of a kind and are awesome! All are starting at a penny, with no reserve for seven-day auctions ending on the afternoon of Wednesday, March 19th at 6:30PM - 8:15PM
To see them all together visit the ACEO section of my store HERE!!
First is one made from a painting you've never seen before - "Alice and Friends" - it was an original triptych painting I sold at MegaCon last weekend, so unless you were at MegaCon - you haven't seen it before! The original had an incredibly ornate frame that my husband Matt made himself. So, for those of you who missed the original - you can at least have this pocket-sized ACEO Card of her!

I'd better go back to painting! I'm working on a commissioned painting for a customer with Morgan Le Fay and some quartz crystals, and it's turning out really neat.
