16 strange sights of London

Earlier this month I went on a walking tour of London like you never have or will experience again with a bunch of YouTubers!
I recorded 16 weird, sometimes creepy but mostly beautiful of the unusual sight and sound experiences along the way during “Lumiere London”. And I added my own tongue in cheek take on each of them.
So, starting with number one, let’s go!

Buying ACEOs and what you are saying

I wanted to share with you some Buyer feedback in my eBay store over the past year and what people have been saying about their ACEO art card purchases from me.

“It’s absolutely perfect, Thank you very much! ++++”

…wrote an eBay Buyer about what I call a delicate and powerful charcoal whippet portrait. Then again, let’s face it, with their speed and graceful looks, whippets are absolutely perfect after all!

Another eBay Buyer described my military ACEO art for the Armed Forces as…

“meaningful,”

…and this one includes Romans 13:3-4 printed on the border.

And…

“Wonderful – very pleased with multiple purchase… lovely detail and colors… fantastic artwork – high quality prints…”

…were the more than three lovely things this eBay Buyer said about these three princess ACEOs of mine.

As your Blue Heeler goes everywhere, right?

Considering this companion will go everywhere you go anyway… where would you display this art? There’s a strong cotton shoulder strap to grab when you need to catch up on Blue Heeler tote bags and these charcoal color Australian Cattle Dog throw pillows won’t show quite so many paw prints.
