More and More ACEOs

“The Babysitter”  Acrylic 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″

Here is a selection ofsome of the ACEOs (“for sale” versions of Art Trading Cards, original paintings which are all 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″) that I’ve been doing since last I wrote.

My goal is to do four a week, and as I proceed I find that the challenges aren’t so much with the designing, drawing, or painting as with coming up with the ideas.  It’s the same problems that the “painting-a-day” painters must have.  But I’m not complaining as they are immensely fun to do. And I’m pleased with the response I’m getting on eBay.  All the money I make goes to animal charities, so it is doubly satisfying to make a sale!

The other challenge I’m finding is to resist the pressures to just paint things that I think will sell.  From a practical point of view, I’d probably be wrong anyway.  But mostly I don’t want this to become a purely commercial excercise.  Yes, it’s for the benefit of the animals, but it’s also about my art journey and it’s important to be true to that.
