ACEOs!! ACEOs!!!!!!!!!!!

Sunday, October 05, 2008

I did it. I've lost my mind.




(all shown in artificial and uv light combined.)

Really, I didn't ever think that I would enter the ACEO world. Generally I prefer to paint bigger. BIGGER! But, well, I don't know. Colin has these cute little pre-cut miniature watercolor papers lying around that he sometimes paints on. One day, I couldn't help but snag a few, just to see what it would be like. Did I mention they're miniature? 2.5 x 3.5 inches. That's like the size of a playing card. ACEOs are pretty big on Etsy, and I guess in the larger (ha) art world in general. It's like a tiny representation of your art. And, I guess, the fact that they're so little is pretty novel in itself. I mean, I had to fit an entire painting on an itty bitty little piece of paper. Incredible.

Anyway, so I actually ended up selling 3 of the 4 I listed in the time it took me to list them on Etsy before getting over here to make a blog post about it. So, there's one left! That red and yellow one that's at the bottom of the list there.

It will come in a plastic sleeve, and be mailed with a postcard of Interrupt's. Yay.

More in the future? I'm sure.
