All Nightmare Long

#53 of 365

All Nightmare Long

A art journal page
I painted for my
red black & white journal
with the words
from Metallica's
All Nightmare long song.


Crawl from the wreckage
one more time
Horrific memory twist the mind
dark, rutted, cold
and hard to turn
Path of destruction, feel it burn
Still life
Incarnation
Still life
Infamy
Still you run, what's to come?
What's to be??
'Cause we hunt you down without mercy
Hunt you down
All Nightmare Long...

The Raven ~ Edgar Allen Poe

#50 of 365

The Raven

This is a art journal page that I made
in my Red Black & White journal.
It features Edgar Allen Poe
and part of his poem
The Raven
Once upon a midnight dreary
While I pondered weak and weary,
over many a quaint and curious
volume of forgotten lore.

Dreaming dreams no mortals
ever dare to dream before

Ghastly, grim and ancient raven
tell me what thy lordly name is?

Nevermore...

MOONSHINE

#45 of 365

Moon ~ Shine!

A whimsy
hand drawn moon.
Done with markers!

~~~
ACEO stands for "Art Cards, Editions and Originals."
ACEOs are small, collectible pieces of art,
always 2.5" x 3.5",
the same size as sports trading cards.
They can be rendered in any medium or style.
Some of my ACEOs are originals,
but I often also sell prints
(called "editions," numbered and signed)
ACEOs are based on ATCs (Artist Trading Cards)
which, by definition, are only traded, never sold.
When the worldwide general public
(including non-artists)
became interested in owning and
collecting these mini artworks,
the ACEO acronym was created on eBay
to distinguish them from ATCs
and to provide a venue for artists to sell these small,
highly affordable and collectible artworks.

SATURDAY AFTERNOON

This is an Original ACEO
hand drawn & painted by me!
No found images were used on this one,
just some found poetry!


I used acrylic paints to paint the background
as well and the design!
I used a crackle medium
on the background as well!
I used gel pens for some of the detail!

I am trying to do more and more
of my own stuff, instead of always using
found images for my art!

This one turned out pretty good
if I do say so myself!!

I will be doing more of these
type ATC's so keep an eye out for them!

№ 9 DREAM
~~~
This is an ACEO I have
in my personal collection!
I was working on random cards
and loved the way this one turned out!
So I am keeping it!


I used a photo that I had taken
of a number 9 that was on
the side of an old train car
as my background! I used
paint, ink and stamps on it
to give it that grungy
rustic look!

I am lovin the way it turned out!!
