Day 9 - 30 in 30

I paint all sizes of canvas but in the current economy I use small format because patrons can see my work in sample size without a huge investment. It also means that I require a smaller studio and can travel with ease. Any paintings over 8" x 10" are usually created for a specific exhibition or by request.

This month I am showcasing ACEO, (Art Card Edition or Original) a collectible form of miniature with a very specific size. They are fun to paint and inexpensive to ship and frame but no less beautiful. My ACEO are all Originals not Editions and they are painted with professional Acrylics on Acid Free Archival substrate. If you like one of my ACEO but would prefer a larger size, I'm very happy to recreate it in a larger format. Larger prints and Art Cards are also available.

Larger Originals or Prints of this ACEO by request

This painting is SOLD but I'm happy to take a commission for a similar work. Contact me to inquire about prints and Art cards.
