This one is my new favorite! I'm going to do a slew of moons. I've always been enamored with the moon, and it's just calling to me right now.
And that's where I'm going to settle things for the moment. I have decided to make it a goal to do an ACEO original per day. So, I'm going to be posting a new one every morning on my Facebook Art Page! I think that even though I seem to be unable to work on the bigger projects right now, at least I'll be able to complete these. I need that sense of accomplishment right now, while everything is so wild.
Speaking of wild, we had new kitchen counters installed yesterday... and they're the wrong color. Oh, they're what we ordered, but folks, these things are pastel PURPLE. They were not that color in the store. I'm very sensitive to color, as you would expect. But apparently "some variations" can happen, and ambient light can make all the difference.
So now, I'm left with a really nice counter that is really the wrong color, and trying to figure out how to make that look nice. It's heartbreaking waiting almost a decade to invest in a really nice counter, and instead of it being the thing that makes everything nicer in your kitchen, it's the thing that screws everything up. I was literally in tears last night. And the worst thing is that purple is actually my favorite color... but not like this!

I know, I know. First world problems. But it still was really upsetting. It also made that much more work to get the kitchen to look nice. What do you think about changing the cabinet doors to a wood color that matches the floor? So they're sort of two-toned cabinets?
Gah. I don't know. I can't believe I made this stupid, expensive mistake.
I need to go work on a little ACEO and try to forget it, but it makes me ill every time I walk into the kitchen. This might work for my diet, however...
