Card Deck Cards

Things are slow all over where art sales are concerned, so, I find myself getting involved in more art projects. Besides the horse and dog breeds projects, I am also involved with the ebay art group, ACEO, in thier double deck playing cards project. Last year, they produced a single deck with the ACEO artwork of the members printed on the cards. It was a very popular project and many decks of cards were sold to the members who either gavc them as gifts or resold them. This year, it was decided to create a double deck so more artists could participate and I jumped on the chance to get in on this one. I drew the king of diamonds for my card and created this centaur king in oils as my entry. (shown much larger than lifesize of 2.5"x3.5"!)

I also entered into the competition for the 3 joker cards in the set, and although I did not win a slot, these are the cards I painted for it. The red joker is the card I entered as only one piece could actually be entered. I call these my ManJack Jokers and they are Leftovertaurs - created from the surplus parts from the creation of the some deity with a very strange sense of humor!

More new work this week includes another appaloosa horse painting, another ACEO card.

  1. Your King of Diamonds is a truly inspired piece of work! I wish I had taken the time to put 2 spades in mine, just couldn't get it to work out to where I liked it!
