Day 104 - ACEO Drawing Project by secrets-of-the-pen Day 104 - ACEO Drawing Project by secrets-of-the-pen
Day 104 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.

Lots of crazy weather these days! I've never done falling snow before, so this was great to try out!

>>Created with charcoal, red pastels and highlighted with chalk on 2.5x3.5 ACEO Strathmore 500 Series charcoal paper. About 3 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.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
This original has sold, but Prints are now available! 25% donated to the Safehouse! [link]

I love how the red colour stands out just enough without overtaking the whole scenario. I think I have a new favourite in your series :)
