"Welcome Home" A lamp lit in a window - small artwork.

Nothing is more heartwarming than the glow of a lamp in the window - a warm embrace of a 'Welcome Home' especially amid the cold chill and bare branches of winter.
This work compelled me to paint it when I saw such a scene one wintery night. It signals caring for the family member that has not yet returned home.

It appears slightly different in various lights due to the deep blue/black of the main colour, which extends onto the sides of the canvas.
SFA (Small Format Art) is great art to hang with meaning and love, for those empty little spaces in your home, perhaps in your foyer, by your lamp? Reminding others that you care. Unframed. Ready to hang. Able to be framed. Available on Bluethumb website (Au) ships world-wide.

My first ACEOs - 3 mixed media creations - Early Beginnings.

I had seen ATCs (Artist Trading Cards - for trading, only) for several years, prior to ACEOs (Art Cards, Editions and Originals - always collectible sizee - 2.5x3.5" - acronym used when selling to ID - search eBay for this term, and other selling sites - Etsy, etc.) commencing in late 2004. Early 2005 I did my very first ACEOs to list on eBay. So I was used to mixed media methods, so my early ACEOs were exploring options to create. I'd done similar with a small number of ATCs which I created and traded in ATC online groups.

These are my first 3, They were sold within seconds of being listed on eBay. I was hooked! Not my best work, by any means, but fun to do. Many 100s of ACEOs created since, in all manner of different ways, and I've loved every moment of them.
