This is a digital reproduction of a small watercolor I did for Nibblefest Art Contest. “Red Dress” was inspired by a photograph taken by a friend who gave me permission to reproduce it as an artwork.

This is a digital reproduction of a small watercolor I did for Nibblefest Art Contest. “Sierra Nevada Fall 2011" is inspired by a photograph I took while on a roadtrip with Hubby to see beautiful fall colors in the mountains.
Little Tree Stands Against Forces
Can be bid on at:
This is a digital reproduction of a small drawing I did from memory upon returning from an Easter dinner visit with in-laws. It was a stormy day of driving in the mountains to reach our destination. During our trip I spied a tiny tree holding its own against a sudden rush of water in a storm drain. Though it was but a quick glance I was inspired by that little tree's forbearance and was compelled to draw what I could remember.
The watermark "Phare-Camp Fine Art" doesn't actually appear in any of the artworks. These digital printouts are ACEO sized, about ACEOs Wikipedia says:
“Artist trading cards (or ATCs) are miniature works of art about the same size as modern trading cards baseball cards, or 2-1⁄2 by 3-1⁄2 inches (64 mm × 89 mm), small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets. The ATC movement developed out of the mail art movement and has its origins in
Switzerland. Cards are produced in various media, including dry media (pencils, pens, markers, etc.), wet media (watercolor, acrylic paints, etc.), paper media (in the form of collage, papercuts, found objects, etc.) or even metals or cloth. The cards are usually traded or exchanged. When sold, they are usually referred to as art card editions and originals (ACEOs)."
This week, beginning Saturday April 20th, you can see more tree inspired works of art created by me and by other great artists as entries in the Nibblefest Art Contest, a themed art contest beginning on the 20th of each month. Please be sure to search for NFAC to see many great entries in ebay; each available for auction purchase starting at just $0.99!
