Just popped another couple drawings on, the first one is a large one done in graphite, the cigarette lady, the second is an aceo after Craig Nelson, who does some of the most amazing pastel paintings out, this is done in pastels also, the third one is after Vincent Van Gogh,  another little aceo, done in pastels.

Thank you for the well wishes that were left for me, I got over the pneumonia, but feels like am getting it back again. It was funny but about a week before I got it I was talking to someone on the phone saying I kept smelling and tasting pesticides into my home, which would have to come from the adjoining half house. Then both my dog and I started vomitting every day. In the end I couldn’t breathe anymore and called the doctor out, and they said it was “chemical pneumonia”  I looked this up and it is caused from pesticides, so don’t think I was too far wrong in what I had said on the phone before actually getting it.

I have hardly done any painting now for awhile, been so tired, but have checked most of the blogs I follow each day, as I really love looking at other peoples art, it gives me such pleasure.

Hi, hope your day is going great and productive in whatever way you wish. I have just had my umpteenth cup of coffee, minus my biscuit, which I just put on the plate on the lounge, walked out the room to turn the light out and back again and guess who’s sitting there wagging his tail and licking his lips when I came back in.  Normally when he knows he’s done anything naughty he gives a naughty wag of the tail, just the last couple of inches of it, but this time they were chocolate chip cookies, and man did they taste good for him, not one speck of remorse was shown. The tail was going full bore, waiting for more.

The coffee’s certainly help  to get through the day.  Have some sleep deprivation going on, with only about 3-4 hours  this morning so hope to get some more later.

I have added some of the ACEO’s  I have been doing lately, I found out about these art collectors cards a few months ago. All ACEO’s measure 2.5 x 3.5 inches, miniature artworks. The popularity of these little artworks is spreading worldwide as another form of collecting original works from artists. They make wonderful gifts to put inside a card, or to ad to your own aceo collection. Some are done in acrylic, some oil, and some coloured pencil and graphite.

My photographic skills are really up the creek and can say these really do look better in person, with better colours also.

All of these are for sale, the prices range from $10-$18.00 Postage is $2.50. Nearly all art works on my site are for sale except those already in private collections. I have been trying to ad a paypal buy now button, but am having problems trying to get this done.

For any enquiries and if you would like to purchase anything please email me at thepaintedbrush@Safe-mail.net  and I will contact you straight back.

Thanks for stopping by.
