Pink Tulips Garden Flowers ACEO, ATC by K. Joann Russell

"Pink Tulips" ACEO
3.5 x 2.5" Acrylic on watercolor paper

This small painting was so much fun to do! I wanted to try a few select colors, a couple of reds and a couple of blues plus a lime green. The 140# watercolor paper provided a great texture for the white to show in places to give the painting a sparkle.

For those not acquainted with the term ACEO, it stands for "Art Cards, Editions and Originals". They originated with Art Trading Cards (ATC) among artists. The dimensions are the same as other trading cards. They are very popular currently.

Purchasing an ACEO is an economical way to collect original art. Some people have large collections of these. There are special display cases for them as well as other accessories. I like to see them framed in a group matting. Little colorful gems that are one of a kind!

Be sure to click on the image of the painting for a larger view that will show brush strokes and color nuances. Enjoy!

Thank you for your compliment and follow. Do you know what a challenge it is to go from 4 ft canvases to ACEOs?
