Summer, Cool Morning , ACEO

Summer, Cool Morning, watercolour ACEO, Vivien Blackburn

Another tiny painting, this time of a cool summer morning, clear blue light, with a breeze blowing the clouds, walking down towards the surf, the blue of the sky reflected in the pools and on the wet sand. My idea of heaven :>)

If you are interested in buying this or any of the others I've shown, you can here: only $18 :>)

It's amazing how many of you that I know online, I've come across at Etsy - I've bookmarked you as I meet you there :>)

I haven't seen the news yet today - has the spider moved?

and hey!!! I've managed smaller urls :>)

More links:

the book:

Imagekind for prints of my work:

Katherine Tyrrell of had the excellent idea of offering to put anything on Imagekind that someone wanted a print of - garbled English there but you know what I mean! if there is anything I've shown that you would be interested in a buying a print of, just email me and I can arrange to upload it there, :>)

hm... another great one... i keep looking at these and ask myself should i, should i not... but currently still struggling to recover framing costs for all those paintings that didn't sell in june... :(

I tried to follow the short link instructions Chris - but couldn't quite work it out - someone else kindly gave a different set of instructions and they didn't shorten it!

So ..... I went to Tinyurl and that works :>)

Maybe someone can explain a better way?

Gesa have a go! I'm actually really enjoying doing them, which surprised me as I generally like to work much much larger.

Framing costs are a killer :>( some ACEOs might recoup some of the cost?
Gesa said…
hihihi... i was contemplating of buying, rather than selling. i have a few aceos on my etsy - but had last year decided not to so stuff merely to put on etsy (too little time for the other things)... but maybe i can revisit that idea?
vivien said…
oh!!! in that case you should!!!!

Vivien, it looks like TinyURL has changed its system to include a forwarding page because of the refusal by some servers to accept their shortened URLs. You might try Metamark ( Using their system, your book is at
and the link takes you straight there.
