"Rainbow at Rest"

Toucans are such strange birds, they are so beautifully colored but they can't sing, they are poor flyers, and they will eat about anything. Instead of being a regal beauty they are more like a colorful clown. This original acrylic ACEO is up for sale in DreamHorseGallery. I listed it in a 3 day auction & hope that by next week this rainbow will be resting in his new home! - Joyce Brandon

Female Landscape (nude)
I've listed a new painting for auction in my eBay store DreamHorseGallery
She's a beauty, but I dare not list her here - I don't want a flag. She is a gentle depiction of Mother Earth, painted in acrylic on a 16x20 gallery wrapped canvas. You can view her here: "Female Landscape" - I hope you enjoy her. Joyce Brandon

"A for Aardvark"

This fellow has just a few hours left. You can find him Here He's one of my ACEOs in my Animal Alphabet Series. I hope to be listing another tonight or tomorrow morning. In other news, one of my customers asked me to let her know when I get some works on canvas listed... I think I'll be able to do that in the next week. Frenzy has helped to bolster my courage - so I may even plunge into some abstract. - Joyce Brandon

I'm an artist and this, my friends, is art (actually his name isn't Art it's Ralph, Ralph Fiennes, and he is stunning)
And with a Whippet no less! It did take me a moment to notice there was a dog in the photo.
Wow. - Joyce Brandon

I was so pleased, Ruth An loved her Shih Tzu painting and encouraged me to show off my work at the next Mercer County Fair. I think I'll do just that :) thank you for the idea, Ruth An. - JoyceB

Ruth An's Shih Tzu

I did this little Shih Tzu painting for a very sweet lady who thought she killed my dog. Sawyer actually ran into her car and she was so upset thinking he was hurt... Our goofy dog was fine (she had slowed way down and I think he ran out thinking she was going to pull into our drive and bonk!) but I thought poor Ruth An was going to have a heart attack. I'd never met her before, but she came up to the house and told me what had happened. She was just on the way home after taking her own little dogs to the vet and she was such an animal lover that I called her later to make sure she knew our pup was OK and decided I'd paint a piece for her just to thank her for stopping - so many people wouldn't!

"O for Okapi"

This is my latest ACEO. I love Okapi - they are so beautiful and so unusual. Months ago I'd made plans for an Animal Alphabet Series and this is my first to be listed. It's currently up for auction in my eBay store DreamHorseGallery - Joyce Brandon
