My drawing, which has a graceful quality, not unlike the daintiest of Cavs, could be worn as a Cavalier King Charles Women’s Tank.

And which color do you think suits that loyal little face on these King Charles Spaniel Women’s Fitted T-Shirts best? Heather Grey? Navy? or Asphalt?

Take a look at my favorite Auntie’s reaction when I gifted her just one of my ACEO cards of this drawing. I based my puppy art on Darcey who has been giving her so much as a new companion.

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.

And when you’re out overseeing some herding or just leading a walk in the park, you might want to go full Blue Heeler alpha and wear the t-shirt! Mens T-Shirts (shown below, left to right) …and not just in blue: Graphic T-Shirt | Classic T-Shirt in Baby Blue | Tri-blend T-Shirt in Green Triblend.

Now as most owners are like their dogs, or so they say, every Australian Cattle Dog owner is bound to be high-energy at work too. So why not mark your work territory on your iPhone case, wallet, laptop skin or iPad case, especially for when you’re next outdoors on the plains!

The most outdoorsy Blue Heeler female owners could wear this scarf at their next fancy party, complete with a sturdy looking 4ply Cattle Dog art board on display (or maybe just a large sticker of your loyal, hard-working companion on the refrigerator full of beers).

Las Vegas Drawing Gallery Board

In this new product line, my drawings are professionally printed on watercolor textured boards which have an organic ‘art studio’ look. If you display one of these on a shelf, you could almost imagine a handful of the oil pastel sticks nearby that I used!

They’re easy to display(with four Velcro dots included) to walls. And there are cute little square sizes too, which really work for displaying a series.

ACEOs 2016 Picks

My Buyers have always loved them. Affordable, perfect to display in a really, really small space, and at this time of year, can be gifted as a Halloween treat or slipped inside for plussing a Christmas card. My ACEOs are the same museum / gallery quality as full size versions. And they’re back and at new low prices too, with great combined postage and multiple purchase deals in my eBay store (where my ACEOs and art selling career all began in 2004).

So, between my recommendations and your favorites, here are 2016’s top five picks for ACEOs over five categories.

This benevolent threesome, (drawings of Flora, Fauna and Merryweather) are getting carried away with that fairy dust in one fresh full color ACEO card, that is also popular as part of a set, accompanying Princess Aurora and Prince Phillip and Maleficent.

Weddings ‘n’ Romance - Blue to Pink - Flora, Fauna and Merryweather

“Weddings ‘n’ Romance – Blue to Pink – Flora, Fauna and Merryweather”

2016, perhaps more than any year since Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. left us, has his powerful example been more in need. This ACEO card has phrases used in a 1967 speech drawn into MLK’s portrait.

Martin Luther King Jr. - Stick with Love

“Martin Luther King Jr. – Stick with Love”

In this U.S. election year, lifting up governing authorities in our prayers may seem even more critical; and so 1 Timothy 2:1-2 written in oil pastel within this White House drawing could make for a fitting visual reminder.

Pray for America

”Pray for America”

Now with three to choose from, a drawing of the unassuming theatre stage door of a London West End show you or a friend has seen, is going to make for a very unusual gift or keepsake. And if you’ve been to “The Lion King,” then you’ll know what magic the artists create who go through that of The Lyceum’s.

Stage Door London - Lyceum Theatre

“Stage Door London – Lyceum Theatre”

One dog owner wrote and told me how she and her bulldog Bailey both loved what she called in my eBay store feedback a “stunning picture”. Of course there are plenty more dog breeds I’ve drawn that are available as ACEOs, so this could be the time to ‘find that breed’ and pick up an inexpensive, little gift for a dog owner you know.

I Love My Bulldog

“I Love My Bulldog”

Blue Heeler art can even turn blue

Daring, without-hesitation charcoal lines which round up the courageous contour of the Australian Cattle Dog in this art, have got to be apt for any assertive alpha owner!

If you’ve ever seen any of my mixed media drawings which appear to be half developing into color, then this could be the pure charcoal drawing equivalent. The blue heeler’s fur, tongue and twinkling eyes spring out in more detail from the pure line starting point of this perky dog’s shape.

This aspect could make for an even more interesting drawing when the canvas is filled with the color of your choice, when purchasing my blue heeler art on something like a hoodie from my Redbubble shop. And of course you don’t have to choose… blue!

Dachshund gifts are a hit

Maybe you have this art of a dozing doxie already. “Sleeping Dog – The Dachshund” was after all, your most popular of all my dog drawings last year.

Fun for dachshunds drawing

And this art has helped raise money for doxies too. Here’s what Laura from Massachusetts wrote me: “I just wanted to send a note to let you know we had a really nice event turnout and we were able to do this great fundraiser for Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue. Your print of the sleeping dachshund was a hit and it generated a little bit of a bidding war in our silent auction. I myself love the print too because it really looks like the things our little dachshunds probably are dreaming of, when their little legs are twitching and they are barking in their sleep.”

So why not go ahead and join the other doxie owners and admirers who are displaying this really popular drawing in their home. You don’t even have to own a dachshund to be able to enjoy it.

If you own my art of the sleeping French Bulldog as well, what a comfortable atmosphere both of them could start to produce. Did you know this dachshund drawing is available as a doxie throw pillow as well (along with other dachshund products), have you checked that out yet? How perfect would that be for the bedroom, or even better for around your dachshund bed themselves, hilarious or what?
