Day 82 - ACEO by secrets-of-the-pen Day 82 - ACEO by secrets-of-the-pen
Day 82 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.

My 4th non-dominant hand ACEO drawing! Today I was actually able to let go and enjoy drawing without being so conscious of using the 'wrong' hand.

And space art is SO fun! :D

And I used a new paper that has been sitting in my studio for over a year because I had ordered the wrong paper. Ooops! Who knew I'd actually love the smooth texture?

>>Created with pastels and highlighted with acrylic paint on 2.5x3.5 ACEO gray 500 series Strathmore charcoal paper. About 3.5 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.

This ACEO card has sold! BUT it is now available for 8x10 giclee prints at LainyArt Etsy : [link]

I love that look. Strong, yet sort of fluffy and soft. Space art is fun, you´re absolutely right about that!
