New ACEO - Hampster Valentine




I did this ACEO (2.5x3.5") yesterday. Today I listed it on eBay. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290386363484

I also have some valentine products on zazzle featuring it (mousemat, mug, cards, etc) - http://www.zazzle.com/artistjillian* - these are a LOT of fun - so check them out!

Some Christmas Cards




These are all ACEO's Art Card size (2.5 x 3.5 inches) that can be displayed as shelf art or desk art. An invention of mine to accomodate 3D images and embellishments

Photo Collages








The result of self-taught photoshop techniques and a long Christmas weekend

Two Christmas Presents


A White Wolf
7" x 9 1/2"
Cretacolor pastel pencils
Anthracite color ClaireFontaine PastelMat

My present for Karl, my anthropologist and wolf lover son in law. I did both of these on the 25th so they weren't late -- they were just riding deadline. I love that PastelMat surface. It's as fine-grained as Bristol vellum but as grabby as sanded pastel papers. Anthracite isn't just black, it's a glittery black with a crystalline look to it that's gorgeous.


Miss Gemini in the Window
6 1/2" x 8 3/4"
Cretacolor pastel pencils
ClaireFontaine PastelMat in Brown.

Painted on the 25th, I got this portrait of Kitten's cat Miss Gemini done during the morning while sunlight streamed in the living room windows. I had a printout of my reference photo but that came out very dark, so it was great to have the living cat walking around in the sun giving me truer color and more accurate markings.

Miss Gemini's markings were designed by a collage artist from about four different tortie cat patterns. She has a perfect seam down the middle of her face and body, but her head and shoulders have one type of distinct-patches tortie marking (mismatched) while her body has a subtler pattern of alternating hairs in brown and black with black patches and softer transitions. This made her hard to paint but I got her accurate! She appreciated my effocts since I stopped and scritched whenever she came near, which was often.

Miss Gemini is sweet and loving, she has an enormous purr that she shares with anyone who so much as looks at her. She was abandoned back in Kansas and came to the door asking if we needed a cat. Kitten fell in love with those big green eyes and her motorboat purr. Two weeks of searching turned up no trace of her previous people, so Kitten got her microchipped, got her shots, settled her in and now she is the little queen of the house. Ari loves having a cat friend again.

So we've had a very happy holidays here in Arkansas. I hope to be posting more often here now, having found Blogger again and realized how many of my friends are also on Blogger.

ACEOs as posters ...



Today's special on Zazzle is for 60% off art prints and posters.

To celebrate I created a triptych (set 3) posters of my first series of alphabet ACEOs - all made using a book from the 1800s. This special is almost like buying one, and getting the other 2 free.

Would look really great framed and hanging as a set.

Morning


Early, early, the dew forming drops to tease parched earth.

Sleepy stars fading into their day beds, there to dream dreams of coal black nights and super-novas.

Little critters on the prowl, safe for the moment in this magic hour.

Tattered clouds, dripping red fingers, point to the new day while one lone bird sings to no one but me.

Close Your Eye's And Dream A Dream


There is an old time song called Dream A Dream.
There is a child's program called sprout that Julia watches all the time.
The first time I ever heard her sing this song I was so in love with her voice. She sings it so softly and unlike any other songs she sings. I was inspired to do this design because of her!
