My Art Included in Pastel Artists of S.A. Exhibition, starting Friday ...


Upcoming exhibition of pastel art, by members of the Pastel Artists of South Australia group (PASA), and delighted to be part of it. It opens Friday night. I've seen a preview of some of the wonderful art to be shown, with at least one that I'd LOVE to have for my own.

Why not pop along during the exhibition to see some truly wonderful pastel artworks - and there will be artist demonstrations, too (free).

Thank you.

watercolour painting mermaid little girl with leafy sea dragon miniature art ACEO

A watercolour I did probably about 10 years ago? An ACEO (Art Cards, Editions and Originals - always 2.5x3.5") collectible artwork.

A little girl who's kind mother allowed me to photo her at the Port Adelaide Fisherman's Wharf Market around 2002. To me she made the perfect mermaid, I included a leafy seadragon in my painting. She had such an appealing impish look on her face.

I think sometimes, you need to revisit what you do, to see where you are with your art, and, perhaps, where you're going.

I do think that I will be returning to doing watercolours in future. Such a wonderful painting medium.


Sometimes, art is fun to do. I did several of these with critters.
Ink sketches on vintage old handwritten ledger pages. I added graphic scrolls, to offset my sketches.
All sold quite easily.
I may do more, someday.
Check out my work. Follow, 'like', share. Thank you.

ACEOs - early beginnings 2005 - 4th, 5th & 6th (ACEOs - always 2.5x3.5")

watercolours artist jillian crider, peacock, women, face, nude, candy, chocolate, conversations, hearts valentines,

EDIT UPDATE: NOTE: Image incorrect These are my 4th, 5th & 6th, ACEOs.

I had seen ATCs for several years, prior to ACEOs 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.

These were my 4th, 5th and 6th - all sold quickly on the eBay. As ACEOs sold quite cheaply these were made from cutting down existing artworks.

100s of ACEOs created in all manner of different ways, and I've loved every moment of them.
