Latest ACEO - Amber Eyes

This latest ACEO is a part of the series that includes Sapphire Eyes, Emerald Eyes and Turquoise Eyes which highlights the diversity of colours that can be found in cat's eyes.
This ACEO is available to purchase in my ebay store.
I had a trial period starting the bidding at 99c for three ACEO's, and found whilst one of them went for a reasonable price, one sold for $5 and one for $11, and since it then feels like I am giving them away, I will revert back to starting the bidding at a higher price. Interestingly, the one that went for $5 (Angel of Peace) was rejected for publication on postage stamps by Zazzle, due to it's "pornographic or sexual content" LOL - that was certainly never my intention!!!!
So, after a disillusioning week, I have decided to strive for a little more direction with my art and try to branch into illustration work, which I know is extrememly hard to break into, so fingers crossed. Hopefully with perseverence, hard work and a lot of patience, some doors might eventually open.

Beautiful Karen! I agree, you have been giving these little masterpieces away! Perhaps give Etsy a try (?) Sales on eBay seems to be dropping dramatically. The very best of luck with any direction you go, I know you will do well with all your talent.

This is so gorgeous!! I love this kitty's eyes!
What's wrong with Zazzle? It must be run by someone like John Aschcroft who has problem standing next to an ancient statue of naked Greek god. lol
