Today, I decided to create something just a little different, yet still along the same very popular Bethlehem theme...
I love cats, so I really like this new piece :o)
Other recent work includes another pretty townscape:

I am really getting into the Bethlehem designs now, and am finding that my work is becoming more detailed as I think about new design ideas around this theme.

As always, all these ACEOs will be available for sale at "fairweather-designs" on Ebay!!

Here is my latest Christmassy ACEO offering...

Christmas ACEO art with Textiles!

In today's ACEO offering I decided enhance my watercolour painting by using an element of my my new interest: textiles. Here is the resulting image, with stars sewn into the card using a beautiful golden thread:
The stars look fantastic, espeically when they catch the light - they really bring the whole image to life! I'm so pleased with this piece, and I will be advertising it on Ebay later tonight...

Following the success of some of my recent Sheep art, I decided to have some fun and to explore the theme once again in another ACEO...
The first in another new series I think!

Linked ACEOs

Working in my studio on some other projects, I had an idea to make Bethlehem ACEOs that can be linked together... Here are the first two; I have decided to advertise them separately, but people will have the opportunity to purchase both in order to complete the whole piture.

I'm really pleased with the way in which this has worked. The world is my oyster: I could create panoramas of whole towns...!! ;o)

New creations

I'm really excited, as I have some new "Bethlehem" creations for sale on Ebay this week! :o)

The first is called "Bethlehem Sheep," and I simply adore this picture; I love sheep as they remind me of some very happy childhood holidays in North Devon, England - there were always so many sheep up on the hills!
I'm really pleased with the way in which this has turned out - so bright and cheerful at a time when the nights seem to be drawing in so fast here now.

The second image is called "Angel of Bethlehem." It's another really cheery piece, and yet at the same time very 'girly' because of the angel in her long pink gown, with feathery wings. Very pretty!

Anyway, that's all for today. I do hope that you like my new offerings...!

Christmas Cards!

The Bethlehem theme has been great, so I have decided to try out some Christmas cards using this design, as well as a snow scene, which I created using a similar design for the little buildings.

I think the bright colours work well with the Christmassy red colour of the card.

These ones are 'spoken for' already I'm afraid but, if you are interested in purchasing similar cards, please do let me know here!

New watercolour ACEOs - The "Bethlehem" series

In my studio this past week I've already begun to feel somewhat Christmassy...!
This time I have returned to watercolours, working on two new themed ACEOs: two vibrantly coloured pieces in my "Bethlehem" series, which was popular with so many people last year. I've really enjoyed creating these pieces, and loved just playing around with some ideas and juxtapositions of such fun colours! I particularly love the little stars, which add great texture to these pieces.
Both ACEOs are available for sale on e-bay until 4th November...! Take a peek at all my Ebay items - I'm registered on Ebay as "Fairweather-designs."
