Nibblefest entry for Two or more creatures mixed together


, , , , , , ,

I’ve watched the Nibblefest Facebook page for ages from afar without joining in. Well,I’ve finally tried my hand at one of their prompts and listed on ebay.

Nibblefest is a monthly themed art contest. Contests run from the 20th to the 27th of every month. All artwork is listed on Ebay .com at 99¢ no reserve!

The theme for November was two or more creatures joined together and while I had many ideas in the end I went with this one:

butterfly fairy womanMy Lady Butterfly.

You can find the listing for her here,she’s a 5×7 acrylic painting on watercolor paper. She does not come framed but will be packaged in a way to avoid damage. Please have a look at here on the ebay page where I have more photos. And look at the others who are competing in this contest too. :)



ACEOS for sale,and a give away too

I’ve been horrible about updating! I have been busy painting and making ACEOs but mostly I haven’t been posting because my Ipod Touch broke on me. It’s just a lot easier for me to post pictures and updates when I have a mini computer with me at all times! I am going to try to come on here more often though-I miss updating here and also seeing what others are up to.

As I mentioned I have been making lots of ACEOs. I’ve been toying with listing them on ebay for a while and I finally took the plunge last night. So far I’ve listed “Clara” ,”The Nutcracker” ,“Sugar Plum Fairy” and Toy soldiers“Like Toy Soldiers” from the Nutcracker themed ACEO set I made for 30 ACEOs in 30 days.

Black heart girlI’ve also listed this one that I call “Black Heart Girl”.

All of my ACEOs are on auction with the starting bid at $0.99 , I’m offering free shipping at this time for orders in the US and $3 shipping to other countries. I say for now because I’d like to see how that goes before committing to doing that forever.:)

I also have a limited time giveaway to celebrate me listing my ACEOs. You can find it on my Facebook page and the card I am giving away is below. I call her “Blonde Star”. I’d love you to come by and enter! :)

Nutcracker themed artcards, ACEOs


, , , , ,

And the trek through 30 days and 30 ACEOs marches on with my version of The Nutcracker and Clara. This project has me really wanting to watch The Nutcracker again. I want to take the girls to see it for Christmas but now I’m getting impatient. There must be something about making Christmas themed art that makes you want to celebrate Christmas early-this is never the case for me! I like my holidays to be celebrated when they are supposed to be celebrated and never before-the store decorations that go up during Halloween drive me crazy!

SugarPlum Fairy ACEO


, , , , ,

Day two of the 30 ACEO in 30 day challenge.

If you can’t tell that I really like challenges than let me just say that I do,I really like challenges. It’s not really incentive to do something that makes them interesting to me it’s seeing what others do with the same prompt. I mentioned that this particular challenge is to make 30 holiday themed ACEOs in 30 days and all of the artists participating are making very cool cards for the challenge. Penny Stewart has decided to do a Nutcracker theme,not The Nutcracker just Nutcrackers in general. Gaylene Allen has decided to go with a candy theme and Joy Redington of Spreading Joy through Art  has chosen not to go with a theme besides the Christmas one. You can see all of the cards for this challenge here.

Sugarplum fairyThis card is my version of the Sugarplum fairy. 3.5 x 2.5 Acrylics,watercolor and prismacolor pencils. Available for sale $6.00,$1.00 shipping and you can pay through paypal if you get in touch with me at lydiapharris at gmail dot com. :)


Update on Fairy painting, a new ACEO


, , , , , ,

I’ve been holding off on painting until I get things a little more organized around here but…I finally just gave in a worked on a few things today.

The thing is I was feeling miserable because I wanted to paint and I wasn’t getting much done. Better to paint and then work on messes I think!

Slow progress,I love watercolors but they get moody pretty quickly if you try to rush them!:)

I’ve been working on an Autumn fairy for the Twisted Ruby Red Slippers Artist’s Collective Auction. I share updates on my Facebook page but I wanted to share here too.
