I'm finding it very hard to believe that 2020 is nearly over. I wish I could say I was glad, but really I feel like we have a long road ahead of us still with COVID-19. Oh, I think we'll recover and life will go back to the way it was (more or less, because … Continue reading Space 2020-6
In my last post, I told you all about ACEO's and my little miniature artworks. Today, I won't keep your attention for quite so long and I'll just let you get to where you want to be: looking at the artwork. This is one of my early space ACEO's: Ice Castle 2.5" x 3.5" acrylic … Continue reading Painting Week #2
It's been awhile since I posted something for my art, so I thought I'd put up a newer ACEO I've done. Butterfly 2019 3.5"x2.5" acrylic on Bristol board © 2019 Dawn Blair I currently have this card and some other new ACEO's listed on ebay.

Per our calendar, we have made the transition to fall, yet some areas of Idaho are going to get snow … Continue reading Winter in the air?
I'm starting this post for the second time. I went off in one direction and realized that it was a whole separate post. You'll get it later in the week. You'll know it when you see it because it's about playing around. I think that was exactly what I needed to do when I started … Continue reading Landscape painting – WIP?
Often, I'm very glad when I see ACEO's go off to someone's home. It cleans out my space and gives me the urge to paint new ones. This is one I wish I had kept. I still kick myself for not keeping this one. Maybe that means I'll get inspired to paint a larger … Continue reading ACEO of the Week – 05/20/17
