WWAO (Worldwide Women Artists Online) is a great group of women artists that I belong to.Â We had an ATC swap this spring of 2009. ATC are the same as ACEOs … a 2 1/2 x 3 1/2″ piece of art.Â ATC is the Art Trading Card … so that name gets used for when they are traded instead of sold.Â That is partly why I have started calling them Art Cards, ACEO in my shops … I think that is a clearer name for these delightful little works of art!
The WWAO Collaborative Gallery shows the incredible work of many talented artists from WWAO.Â This gallery (http://wwaogallery.blogspot.com) showcases ATCs from 16 artists in an incredible diversity of styles and mediums.Â It is worth taking the time to look through these posts …Â I know I have enjoyed seeing lots of work from one artist, each after the other … in some deep way it taught me something I can’t verbalize yet … about both the continuity and range a single artist can have and still have her style look coherent.
WWAO Collaborative Gallery
WWAO on the site says â€œWorldwide Women Artists is an international collective of women artists showing and selling our work through the worldwide web. As women artists, we give birth to our ideas in a variety of styles and media. We embrace the diversity of each otherâ€™s work, celebrating the joy of creating our art and sharing it with the world. We welcome female visual artists from all over the world who create and sell their own original art.â€
Here is the post about my art …. (http://wwaogallery.blogspot.com/2009/03/wwao-atc-swap-diane-clancy.html).Â You can see 13 pastels that I did for this ATC Swap.Â I hope you enjoy them!!Â I am planning to do more – particularly as a way to be able to sell originals at an affordable price.Â I have also made prints of these if there is one that just grabs you and you just MUST have!Â All my print ACEOs are $6 – so let me know if you are interested.

I am thrilled to report that I have been working in the studio … using real, non-digital, art materials.Â This is one of the results.Â I have created 15 ACEOs that I like … and by the end of doing them, I was getting back in the groove again of how I use pastels.Â I have never tried to draw so small before – not in any serious way.Â Some of you know I have been trying to get back in there (the studio) to create with traditional mediums … so this is quite a success for me!

On the last several ACEOs, I was tackling them as if I actually knew what I was doing .. itÂ was a great feeling!Â I love working digitally and it has been wonderful for me to be able to … especially when I often didn’t feel well enough to be in the real physical studio.Â But it was also miraculous for me to be able go into the studio … where there is no UNDO button … and start to feel good about creating this tiny little cards (2 1/5″ x 3 1/2″) …. it started to be a whole lot of fun!Â Even though it is cold in the studio – the temperature is 63 degrees.
I hope you like this vibrant,Â colorful painting! I know I do … I use pastels in a way unlike most people … but I use them the way that feels right to me … Delighted to be sharing this with you!Â Thank you … I would love to hear about your own process in creating.
Susan Elkin and I have been working quite hard on her business and she has made incredible progress.Â Â By the way, Susan has posted today!!Â Thank you for stopping by!
