A few days before the new year I decided to do some sort of "piece of art a day" thing to keep me on track.

I chose the 2.5 x 3.5 inch format, I think called ACEO.  Didn't want to call it ATC or post there because I"m not sure what I'll be doing with these and recently learned that it is important in the definition!  (move if necessary)

Lets just call it little art Smiley

So I've got 3 days and working on the 4th as we speak, though that one might not be posted until tomorrow since I'll be away tonight (but it will be done!)

Day 1 January 01, 2008
Ink and watercolor


Day2 January 02, 2008
pencil


Day 3 January 03, 2008
ink and watercolor

not available

I would really love to know if anyone else is doing this and follow along, I had no luck in getting my sister to join in and it always feels nice to not be alone!

ive actually been doing (something like) this for awhile, simply because i suck at drawing and painting and want to improve my skills. so everyday i make it a point to either draw or paint something or both.  but i love your work really awesome stuff, i love the cat in particular

Thank you so much, you've all put a smile on my face Smiley and I don't feel so alone!

I'll keep posting my daily drawing/paintings.  So far its fun and I end up getting so absorbed in the art... my husband is already jealous of the ACEO time!

Absolutely amazing!! I'm inspired to do something like this for myself! Except I might do art every two days, or something. Or at least a sketch a day, a finished peice a week! XD

LOL I'd be affraid of letting myself down. You are truly inspiring, motivated and courageous to do something as wonderful as this! XD I will be bookmarking this page, I hope to see more and more and more! <33

I love them, my favorite is the Frog. He is fantastic, great job and I love ATC however, you have to trade them for someone else's work (no selling, just a straight trade). Although very much fun, sometimes very hard to convince yourself to let go. I have heard of ACEO, I think you can trade them, or sell. Either way, they are great items to swap. (it would still be hard though, they are sooo lovely!)

Gorgeous little pieces af art you have there and I love your style. The frog is my most favorite of the group but they are all great. Will most definately keep my eye on this thread to see all your lovely works of art to come.
