A day of Production

My day started bright and early -
up at 6:10AM to get my daughter off to school -
then right to work producing a new series of Halloween ACEO"s
(Art Cards, Editions, and Originals)

The characters for this series of Halloween ACEO's
are reproductions of illustrations I created last year for
the children's book ~ "Over in the Graveyard".

With my cup of coffee close by ~
I selected the characters I wanted to reproduce ~
hand painted them with acrylic paint ~ Used my trusty
paper cutter to cut linen canvas to 3.5" x 2.5"~
drew and painted the background scene for a few images.
As the paint dried, I took time out for a long walk
with a good friend, then got back to work ~ adhering characters
to the painted art cards.

Time out to pick my daughter up from school ~
for a private art lesson ~
for dinner preparation ~
for feeding my family ~

then back to work ~ with a little bit of white wine ~
a few more characters ~ more drawing - painting -
and adhering.

Tomorrow will consist of taking pictures of this series ~
posting them here and on my etsy site. But for now ~
I'm calling it a day.
Sweet Dreams.
