My Mixed Media art update and a giveaway!!!

"A lovely summer day"
2.5" x 3.5"
Mixed Media on Watercolor Paper

For some time now I've had people asking me when I would make more of my very colorful, whimsical art.  After having to step away from the studio for the past two weeks I felt like I had lost some momentum and needed to get my creative juices flowing again. I thought that I would flex my old illustration skills and see what image I could come up with.

This is the journal page I created:

Since I didn't want to put away all of these bright colors yet, I thought "Hey, why not create a little ACEO like the ones I used to do?"  So, this is what I came up with:

(as seen at the top of this post)

I thought that it wasn't half bad (for being so long out of practice) but mainly it just made me smile.

Who couldn't look at all those colors and feel just a little bit happier?  Which then caused me to come to the conclusion I need to share the happiness!

If you would like the chance to add a cheery, little piece of art to your collection just enter the giveaway below! The deadline is August 31st.
