Coffee Grounds and Sharpened Pencils …IF only.

So, I’m working on an exciting new illustration project.

The only hint I can give you is “farm.”
And that I’m going through coffee at a frighteningly fast rate…
…Oh, and I can show you this fun little collection I put together for a creative boost:

Barn Crates and Sunbeams
I found the “Garden Dirt Fragrance Oil” by AdamsboroSundries particularly inspiring:
Garden Dirt Fragrance Oil Low Shipping

But, I have been drawing up a storm…
Okay. So I guess I will also give you this sneak peak:

But that’s all you get.
For now.
(and I hope you feel “suspended” :)

Another Day, Another Dollar

Another morning of drawing. Mornings when I don’t have art lessons to teach, I work on my little pieces. I enjoy a cup of coffee and a few inspirational ideas to get started. I just started on Pinterest (search for me!).

Shipping out a few ACEO cards today. I especially love to see repeat customers! I have several consistent bidders, and it always makes me happy to know my artwork continues to go to people who love it.

More Please!

I have been busy! Among other things, I’ve gotten married, bought a house, and continued drawing! I have been teaching art lessons and I have started up more illustration – selling quite a bit on eBay, I should be able to better keep up with this blog now.

Like my art? Search for “ALMI art” on eBay and you can purchase original ACEO’s! I buy ACEO prints from other artists all the time – they are a blast to get in the mail. ACEO’s (Art Cards Editions and Originals) are small works of art (3.5″x2.5″) and are a significantly cheaper way to own original works of art from artists. They can be collected into albums like trading cards, framed or matted. They are fun to create and fun to collect – check them out and look for much more to come!

Happy Summer

So, things have been really busy. My dad says, “When it rains it pours” and he is right! I went from having part-time work and trouble finding what I was looking for, to enough work to keep me busy for ages! It’s great, though, and I’m very excited about everything happening. I plan to keep up on this blog, and I really appreciate all the encouragement. It’s much easier if you know people are interested in looking – otherwise you are typing on a blank page for the empty realms of cyberspace.

I’ll leave you with an image of a piece I did last summer for an Art in the Park event, and leave you with the promise of my new stuff to come.  :)
