Winter Skies

Winter Sunset ACEO
2.5 x 3.5 inches

A new week and a new start on one of my 2008 art goals to create ACEOs. I have been practicing with this small format, and it is a challenge to work this small. Since I first discovered ACEOs I have been intrigued by the concept. Artist Cards Editions & Originals with the only requirement being the size must remain 2.5 x 3.5 inches. An affordable way for anyone to build an art collection.

This drawing is from a winter view off our back deck at sunset. I love the tangle of trees reaching skyward and the brilliant sky behind.

that is a very pretty little card. I really like the colours. :)

I really like doing ACEOs. They don't take forever and a day to do and surprisingly you can get a lot of detail on the surface even though it is so small.
