an artist by Day


I'm an artist by day...and by night and pretty much all the time. I want to use this blog as a way to show more people my art so that someday I can actually support me and my family on my art alone. And have enough money left over for really great vacations. Wouldn't that be something? So..first things first. I like to create ACEO cards. Don't ask me what that stands for but I know what it is. These are 2.5" x 3.5" collector cards...kinda like baseball cards but a lot cooler. These can be limited edition or they can be open edition. I like to keep mine to around 10 in each edition and they are $6.99. I'm attaching one of my favourites here. To go to this one follow this link...

I will be adding to this often so please check back.

Jan ,I have been teaching high school art for the past 24 years in Austin, Texas and am looking at my future. I worked on a series of pen and ink drawings for the past 6 years and am now doing color designs. I am looking for someone to take a look at my web page and give me some advice on wether it works. Some suggestions on the size of my photos. I formatted the biography on websites seen on The Bentley Licensing Company. I didnt want it to be too wordy. I have about 400 designs and all are not on the web page.
I am going to walk the Surtex show and collect information and gain some knowledge. Perhaps I will attend a class or two.
I am really grateful to all who share their experiences, for those of us starting out it is invaluable.
My web page is www.butterflyleaves.net
Hope you can take a look.
Sincerely,

Vivian
