There is a wonderful movement going on to teach grade schoolers about ACEO's (Art Cards, Editions and Originals) These wonderful, affordable works of art are only 2.5 X 3.5 inches in size, but are big on creativity and beauty!
"Create. Collect. Trade. A Collection of Artist Trading Cards Created by Artists and Students" is an 80 page yearly publication of ACEO (Art Cards, Editions, and Originals) and ATC (Artist Trading Cards) art created by 25 artists and 25 elementary art students, who use these artists as inspiration.
I am proud to say that I am included in the book. I was able to choose a selection of my ACEO pieces and write a little blurb about myself. Check here for more information.
There is another project under way to also assist students in learning about art and ACEO cards. ACEO artist are invited to send some of their ACEO work to the organizer (a teacher) to assist in teaching and inspiring her students. For more information on Proect ATC check out this Etsy thread:
I am definitely sending some cards to help the students. Any ACEO artists out there, please consider submiting some of your work! We will be feeding the creativity of the next generation of ACEO artists. Long Live ACEO/ATC!

Hello - I finished the bunny for my husband, finally! I am selling 8 X 8 prints in my etsy shop here: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=9378064
I am happy with how he came out. What do you think?
I have also been working on my very own website. Check it out here: http://www.artbylmr.com/
I am so excited. Freewebs made it very easy and affordable.
I just seem to have no time between painting, Etsy, blogging, Ebay, garage saleing, auctions, but that is what it is all about isn't it? I know everyone is so busy with kids, work, house upkeep. Just don't forget to stop and smell the flowers so to speak ( that would be hard to really do here in northern NY right now:) Touch base with someone you have let drift out of your life and you will feel great for it!
