Hi there. :-)
I thought you might like to see some of the little art cards (ACEOs) I've been doing lately to sell on eBay. These have all been sold. I am pretty happy with how they have gone at auction, and they are fun to do, so most of my spare time has been spent on painting them. 

The pics here are larger than the originals. Please feel free to save them. Apologies for the copyright marks.

If you haven't heard of them already,  ACEO stands for Art Card Editions & Originals, and these tiny artworks are the size of a trading or playing card - about 9 x 6 cm (3.5 x 2.5 inches.)

Hope you like 'em. :-)





Bag End.

Hobbits sheltering from the rain. (Book inspired rather than film inspired.)



Frodo at Amon Hen.



Frodo, FOTR. It's where he turns to begin the long journey from Rivendell to Mordor.



Here is a link to my current batch of art cards on eBay. No, I'm not hinting that anyone should bid on them; just go and have a peek at them if you'd like to.  :-)

Hey, congrats on your first anniversary of meeting Elijah at Comic Con. It's so hard to believe that it's been a whole year since that weekend!

LOTR art cards

Thanks Emmi.

Ooh, it's the last Harry Potter book, isn't it! Awwww, indeed.

Well, I hope that the blundering romantic escapades of Master Frodo will help ease the pain of knowing that there will be no more Harry Potter.
Hope that there's a happy ending for Harry!!!

They are beautiful! I just love the one of Frodo. It's exquisite.

Thank you so much. I was quite happy with the way it turned out too. :-)

I really like the second and last card. The colours capture the Shire and Frodo is delightful. Thanks for sharing them.

LOTR art cards

Thanks Caz. :-)

The second card was just a scene from my imagination, inspired by Tolkien's words in the books.
I am doing more of these as it's so much fun to just think up a little scene instead of doing one from the films, and stressing over whether I've got it right or not. ;-)

LOTR art cards

Thank you for your lovely comment, Wynterhawk. :-)
Yes, it would be fun to move into a painted scene of one's choosing. Maybe I'll paint Frodo lying in his bed at Bag End with a come hither look, and you can move right on in! Lol.

Are you selling originals, or have you run some prints? Because I would buy these in a heartbeat! You should consider doing prints or actual greeting cards! *loves*

LOTR art cards

Thank you Aprilkat. :-)

The pics here on my LJ are ones that have already been sold. I would certainly consider selling prints of these. If you want to discuss it further, please feel free to email me at katie@dcsi.net.au

Do you shop on eBay at all? Here's a link to my current lot of little art cards listed there.

Hi there!

These are beautiful and I especially like the last one of Frodo. You are one talented lady, painting, writing and creating Frodo dolls :)

I would be VERY interested in buying something like htese. I love the first two and the last especially if you ever do anything similar I would like a chance to buy. I will go look on your ebay now.

Gosh, how I love to hear that people are buying your work, first because you're so good, and secondly because it means there still are people keen on LotR. Congratulations!
