The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life
off our souls.

I LOVE this quote; for me, art is like meditating.
On a perfect day: I meditate in the morning, then sketch and paint at different times throughout the day, then I like to 'wash my soul' before bed.
One of my favorite times to doodle and sketch is at night while watching TV with my Mr. Unless it's a movie, I can't really seem to sit still and watch. This is the perfect time and place for me to create little original pieces of art! I love the size of an ACEO, just 2.5" x 3.5", because it is so easy to create anywhere... the living room, the park, the coffee shop, the pool, etc. etc.
This is "Taurus Girl".... I love her cute little bull. ♥
My ACEO sketch bag contains: cut cards, pencils, permanent pens, colored markers and Gelatos. I start sketching with Faber-Castell pens, just to get the basic outline,
then I add the doodles and colors with Copic Markers.
I list my original ACEOs on eBay :) It's fun to watch the auctions & it's a great place to introduce another audience to my art.
I list my prints in different sizes here on my website.
Thank you, I love to read your positive comments... artist's have tender souls :) haha!
Just kidding, if you have a negative comment, you are allowed to leave it as well. ~Alicia
