Day 10 by secrets-of-the-pen Day 10 by secrets-of-the-pen
Day 10 of my 366 daily art project! A lot more are on the way! Please read all about my project and charity below and in my journal.

Definitely a mixed medium and a very interesting play with color and materials! Have I mentioned how I love drawing stars, sparkles and freckles?


>>Created with tinted charcoal, pastels, prismacolor colored pencils and acrylic paint on black 2.5x3.5 ACEO card. About 1.5 hours.


:bulletred: See all my ACEO's in my gallery here: [link]





-----------------

♥ For every day of 2012, I will be drawing one ACEO sketch card. Every single one will be for sale - ALL proceeds to be donated to charity at the end of 2012.

My charity of choice is a local foundation called Alternatives to Violence, who is currently raising money to build a safehouse. This safehouse will provide a secure shelter to men, women and children who have recently escaped physical and sexual abuse.

With the safehouse, 312 individuals every year will receive crisis intervention, counseling, safety planning, advocacy and shelter.

Together, through art, we can help make a difference.

I think there are many other planets out there. Why would God create all that space and only make us?
