Fairy Belle – ACEO/Senryu

I just discovered Paint Party Friday and thought  this would be a great way to join the artist community and at the same time maybe get my artistic juices going.  This is an art card I made some years ago and just a few days ago decided to include her on my Zazzle website on one of their newest products – playing cards.  Back when I was a kid, many many years ago, I loved collecting playing cards which we would trade in order to get the cards that matched our special collections.  I specialized in collecting horses, long-haired dogs like red Irish setters,  collies, Australian shepherds etc and horses, beautiful horses.   I don’t know if kids do this anymore but my memories are what prompted me to put Fairy Belle on playing cards.  I wrote a haiku  senryu introducing her.  One difference in the original ACEO and the one on the playing card is the enhancement of color for print production.
