Vacation and Thank You

So what does a peacock have to do with anything? Nothing really - it's just a beautiful bird. This one is standing on the barn roof in the evening sun, stamping his feet and shimmying - trying to attract the attention of one of the many bored and indifferent females wondering around. This was shot at the historic Leo Carrillo Ranch, which we live very near to.
So first and most important - THANK YOU to everyone who has purchased my daily paintings, who reads my blogs and sends me email. I love and appreciate you so much. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Your support means so much to me and keeps me going.
Speaking of going...I am going on vacation until after July 4Th. Actually, this is not completely a vacation - I have several show/gallery opportunities coming up and I have to spend every minute I can painting for these, then a day or two off with family at the lake. These paintings will be larger work - more time and energy consuming.
I will be back with my little daily paintings after the Fourth, so don't wander off too far.
Have a great Independence Day!

A LITTLE HISTORY LESSON AND EXPLANATION OF ACEO'S AND ATC'S

ACEO means Artist Card Editions and Originals.
ATC stands for Artist Trading Card.
ATC's and ACEO's are collectible.
ATC's are the artist's substitute for sports-themed trading cards. There are two rules for ATC's: they must measure 2.5"x3.5" so they will fit in the same plastic sleeves that sports cards are kept in and they can NEVER be sold - only traded. Oops, three rules - the artist writes their name, contact information, title of the ATC and number (1/8, 2/8...) if it's part of an edition.

ATCs are called originals; sets of identical ATCs are called editions and are numbered; sets of ATCs that are based on one theme but that are different are called series.
OOAK means One Of A Kind.

That explains ATC's but what about ACEO's? Since ATC's can't be sold, only artists can trade and collect with other artist effectively cutting out non-artists who appreciate the art and would like to collect it. Therefor, ACEO's became the answer to this dilemma - they can be sold and purchased and traded freely, including everyone who wants to play and collect.
