One type of art I have always liked and enjoyed creating is symbolic or simply abstract art with interesting lines and shapes. This oil pastel ACEO painting is a good example. This pattern or symbol or whatever you want to call it doesn’t have a specific meaning since it was just a creation of my imagination, but I do enjoy making artwork with specific historical symbology as well. To me, the finished picture looks rather primitive or almost like cave/ancient native artwork:

I recently created these two ACEO artworks with my Brea Reese alcohol markers. I like the way they turned out. The first one I tend to think of as an abstract mother figure:
For the second one, I created a strange, somewhat geometrical face shape. The markers left the blue lines surrounding the face, but I kind of like them since they circle around the face:
These two artworks already sold, but feel free to check out my other art for sale on my Ebay store!
Recently I found a great deal ($4!) on a package of Brea Reese alcohol markers, so I’ve been experimenting and playing around with them. My husband couldn’t believe that the markers originally retailed for over $17 for a pack of six, so I told him to never look at the price of Copic markers then!
Here are a couple ACEO artworks I made with the markers. I do like how they are a bit smoother and almost more watercolorish than regular markers, but I don’t like how much they bleed through the paper:
As always, you can find my current artworks for sale on my Ebay store!
Sometimes I pick a few random colors and then make a painting or two out of them, just to see what I end up with. I did this a couple days ago and came up with two acrylic ACEO paintings that I rather like. The first, I like to call “The Pumpkin Patch”, because that is what it reminds me of:
The second painting used 3 of the same colors. I don’t actually have a name in mind for this one, it is more of a pattern piece I suppose:
By the way, I’ve noticed recently that sales of my art have gone up quite a bit! I’m not sure if that is partly due to me sharing it here on my blog, but if it is, thank you so much! You have no idea how much your support means to me! As always, the above pieces are available for sale on my Ebay store if interested!
The following two abstract gouache paintings were inspired by toys of all things. This first one was inspired by a random grouping of McDonald’s Shopkins toys (sort of like a toy still life painting):
And this second painting was inspired by a Gingerbread-themed rubber ducky I won from a claw machine at the arcade:
Both of these paintings and other artworks are currently available at my Ebay store!
I love the way this abstract acrylic ACEO painting turned out! It was a pure abstract, no subject in mind, but lo and behold, when I was done, I saw what I like to call “the hounds of hell” within its image. Do you see it?:
This piece is currently for sale on my Ebay store if you would like to check it out!
Having a bad day? Just want to tell the world to F-off? Let a painting say it for you:
Ironically enough, I actually wasn’t in a bad mood when I painted this small acrylic picture, I just thought it would be rather funny to combine the naive, childlike art style with a wee bit of apathetic swearing. As of right now, the original is still up for sale on my Ebay 🙂
