After Thanksgiving and ACEO Theme Week

I hope you all have a nice Thanksgiving. I, unfortunately, was sick and missed going to my SILs and brothers. I heard all had a good time and that I was missed, which is nice to hear.

Once my raging headache went away and my stomach settled down, I tried to enjoy just sitting and doing nothing. which wasn't all that hard to do.

Monday, Dec. 1 is ACEO theme week on eBay (search: ACEO TW). This month's theme is Snow Globes. I haven't yet decided what to do, but I'm sure it will involve a rat or a cat or perhaps both.

I will sign off today with some of my newest ACEOs which can be viewed/bid on here:

NibbleFest time on eBay

Every month on eBay the NibbleFest group, founded and run by platypus, has an art contest. Art of any size is listed at 99¢ and is based on a pre-choosen theme for that month. For example, this month is Christmas Trees, next month will be Chickens, so if you love chickens, check out NFAC December 20th.

This rat trying to take the Santa on the Moon ornament is my interpretation of the Christmas Tree theme. It is ACEO sized (2.5"x3.5") To see all the art go to eBay and put NFAC in the search bar, or click my rat to see my auction and a link to all the other entries.

Another fun themed art contest is from the ACEO group founded by bone*diva. This themed contest begins the first of every month, with a price starting of $4.99. The art must be ACEO sized since it is after all, the ACEO group. So look for this contest on December 1st, search eBay for ACEO TW.

Thanksgiving is coming

Turkey day is just around the corner. I did this ACEO (2.5"x3.5" art card) of a rat trying to help out a wild turkey. He is telling the turkey:

'Come with me if you want to live'.

I also have just listed the following two ACEOs, a rat bringing a dish of lasagna to Thanksgiving dinner at a relatives and a horse watching the antics of three fiesty little rats.

View my other art on eBay here.

My art is done mostly in colored pencil with gouache (an opaque watercolor) and pastels.

ACEOs on eBay

Hello, it is a beautiful day here in good old New Jersey, but a little chilly.

I have a bunch of ACEO drawings listed on eBay. For those who don't know, ACEOs are small works of art, 2.5"x3.5" (yes, that is inches). They must be that size or they are not ACEOs.

I love to draw animals, especially rats, mice and cats. At the moment it is mostly rats, and I try to put them in everyday situations.

Here is a new one I just listed of a rat who loves to read at the library:
