Here are a few more of the ACEOs I’ve done recently. I especially like the barn owls. I’m finding it valuable to put myself on a painting schedule, and with each little painting I complete I feel more comfortable and accomplished.
They’re selling on eBay fairly well and I was able to donate nearly $500 to animal charities for February and March. It’s a lot of work, and also a lot of work for the money. Each painting takes me between four and five hours, and I start the bidding at $17.50. I’ve had a few that sold for around $35 and another few that sold for abount $25, but most that sell go for under $20.
Still, I’m pleased. I know that it’s difficult for people to part with their money, especially for a luxury, non-utilitarian item like these little paintings. And I’m grateful and flattered any time someone decides to do so.
So for now – back to painting!
