Pet Guardians



Today I was feeling creative and decided to make a few ATC's (art trading cards), OOAK (one of a kind), ACEO (art cards editions & originals) of people. Of course, being the dedicated stay at home dog mom that I am, I decided these portraits were going to be part of a series entitled "pet guardians".

Wow! I got a new scanner last year and today, I finally figured out where the files were being saved. In the past, I would scan images. Then I couldn't locate them on my computer. What a drag!

At the left is one of my minature OOAK (One of a Kind) ATC's (Art Trading Cards) that I scanned. I painted it in June 2006 while vacationing in Ocean Shores, WA. I brought my kite with and flew it along the ocean. I'm 'flying high' now that I figured out how to use my scanner.

I create two kinds of art: The Fine Art of Susan Calvert and The Fun Art of Susan Calvert. "Flying High" is available for sale at www.SusanCalvert.etsy.com.

Thanks for visiting.
