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.

My path to the Castle of the Prince and Cinderella

Walt Disney’s animated 1950 “Cinderella.” Today it’s like some precious, ancient pictorial and musical manuscript, from which little girls’ dresses and collectibles, theme park experiences, and the 21st century live action movie (now my favorite of all time,) have all courteously used as their source.

Would you like to take a walk-through tour with me in the video below, of my castle? Larry Nikolai was the concept artist for this 10” piece which was retired in 1998 and came with a deed “signed” by the original “owner”, transferring ownership!

Drawing and smudging with princess appropriate oil pastels, now here’s my new Cinderella art still life study of this highly accurate and faithful Walt Disney Classics Collection, Enchanted Places sculpture “A Castle for Cinderella.”

I suggest embellishments using special transparent blue oil pastel containing a pearly luster, perhaps with the initials of someone special in a subtle white hiding in the iridescence. Request a bespoke version of my new “Charcoal and Oil – Cinderella Characters 1” here: http://bit.ly/JhvsPT

The Color of Cinderella

Distinct oil pastel color ‘adds chemistry’ between the Prince and Cinderella in my charcoal drawing of the WDCC sculpture “Royal Introduction,” in “Charcoal and Oil – Cinderella Characters 1” débuting today.
