A Couple of New Little Pieces of Artwork..



I finally managed to get back on track and do a couple of little ACEO's. Here are a couple of little mermaids. I do love doing anything ocean.

For those of you who have never heard of an ACEO it means.. Art Card, Editions & Originals. I was clueless the first time I saw the term. They are baseball sized miniature pieces of art, 3 1/2" x 2 1/2. They originated on Ebay as simply trading cards and then grew to cards for sale. They have since jumped outside of Ebay and most sites like Etsy.com and even a few galleries & art shows are offering them these days.



As an artist I love doing them, quick, easy and well honestly fun!! As a buyer...I confess..I have a collection..it is a wonderful way to purchase very good artwork for a little price. Many artists offer their amazingly talented, original works for a little price. Lots of artists offer prints at good prices also.

I hope you all have a peaceful weekend!! Namaste, Sarah

The thing that really caught my attention in the first piece of art is that identical curve on both tails. Great work.

Your mermaids are lovely!!! I've always wondered what ACEOs were but assumed they were trading cards. I've been making a few but haven't been very happy with the results as of yet. We'll have to trade when I can start making ones I like!

Blessings,
Christine

P.S. I'm loving everything you have sent me. It's going to be heard to part with my zoo!!!
