Jean Harlow

aceo-jean-harlowThis is an original mixed media ACEO of the fabulous Jean Harlow.  She was the original blonde bombshell and died way to young.  Isn’t she amazing?

Boy am I ever having fun with this new series.  I am loving the research.  So many of these great stars did live long lives (not always happy.) But some, like Jean didn’t even make into her thirties and yet, look at the impact she made on the world!  People still love her to this day.


ACEO The Pout

Another ACEO available on etsy.

ACEO The Girl With The Sequined Hat

I love this gold sequined hat.  It is a vintage piece that I bought for myself but I must admit, it looks way better on my five year old.

This mixed media painting is 2.5″x3.5″ and is available on Etsy.aceo-girl-in-the-sequined-hatwm1

ACEO The Sad Ballerina

aceo-sad-ballerinawmHere is another study of the sad ballerina with the hole in her tights.  Poor thing, nothing worse than a hole in your dance tights.

This is a 2.5″x3.5″ mixed media painting on rag paper and is available in my Etsy shop.

ACEO Joy 2


This is a new ACEO I did recently.  I have been challenging myself trying to capture extreme expressions without having them look distorted or unatural.  It is hard.  I think I managed to do it.  I love the way children really feel the joy with their whole body.  Head back, mouth open.  Just pure pleasure in the moment.

This one is available in my etsy shop.
