"Magic Jar"

Here's a different concept ... an ACEO which stands for "Art Card Edition and Original". Each miniature painting measures 3.5" x 2.5" and is painted - or created - in any medium you wish. I have a collection of them for sale on eBay and there seems to be quite a market for them. I believe Collectors have hundreds or all different mediums and styles.

Some of mine have added sentimental value by being painted on the back of vintage photographs, many of which were taken in the shadows of Table Mountain in Cape Town.

This one is a collage and acrylic called "Magic Jar" and can be found on eBay. Simply click the image or its title below it.

More ..... all on eBay ....

Daisies and Fairgrounds

I've just finished a mammoth task of photographing, editing, and uploading a whole whack of paintings to both my own eBay sales page as well as my sister's Selador Collection. She was sensible and chose a nice short and simple name for her business - not me, ho no, I go for ... The Painter's Palette Original Art Store. Typically long-worded. What the hell, it's the paintings which count!

Here are two of them, a floral and an abstract, and you just have to click the images to go through to the relevant sales page.
"Daisies" by Lynda Cookson

"Daisies" was entirely palette knife painted, while "Fairground" was mostly palette knife painted but includes some finishing touches with brush as well as a few bits of collage.
