I'm delighted with the response this blog has gotten--thank you SO MUCH, it's wonderful to be able to design a new "sold" montage! I'll leave it in the sidebar and update it when necessary, and when I get a chance take down the posts that have these images in them to make room for newer work.
You won't have to scroll through so far, perhaps...
And again, thank you. I am delighted and touched by your comments and your support.

3.5 x 2.5 inches
whose work I admire a great deal.
ATCs are artist trading cards, and that's how the phenomenon started out--but many people who were not artists wanted to collect these little jewels, too. So ACEOs were born--still the size of a playing card, but "artist cards, editions and originals"
to meet this need. Some ACEOs are prints and some are still original, as is this one.
I was experimenting with painting with watercolor on paper treated with gesso--it makes a beautifully malleable surface and creates effects not possible any other way. I did a large painting with this technique for my latest book, and
this little card-size painting just for the experience.
People are collecting and displaying these tiny paintings in ingenious ways--framed and grouped together, piled in baskets, in scrapbooks--however they want!
I hope the idea allows you to own an original work of art--get your feet wet...
SOLD, and thank you!

original, matted watercolor on paper
9 x 12
I taught a workshop at Maine Coast Art Workshops (in Port Clyde, Maine, at the time) and have been captivated by the coast of Maine ever since. The early morning fog, the scent and sounds of the ocean, the people up and about, working in the early morning...
This boat was no longer in use, but in my mind's eye I could see the skipper there on the deck, surrounded by the lobster traps nearby.
This one will come to you matted in archival matboard in a neutral off-white, ready to frame to your personal taste.
