Work in Progress.....








This latest piece is entitled Vivid Spirit. It is shown here as a work in progress, as these posts are,I have been told, interesting to many of you-thanks!
The progress shots are not best quality as were taken on my phone ( I don't often keep the camera at my studio!),you will see one has been 'flipped' as I find this helps me to look at a piece more objectively part-way through and spot imbalances more easily ( I used to hold work at a mirror a few years ago,for the same reason,which could be so awkward- I love the ease of a pocket-size camera phone that now does it for me in an instant!) The final shot is a high quality version which reflects the piece quite well. Overall I am pleased at how this one turned out, and I really like the mixed of loose texture and finely added details layered together for a very hot and complex mix of colour.
This is a mixed media piece which includes inks,acrylic and oil pastel on wooden board, lightly glazed to protect and retain intensity of the layers of colour.

What are ACEOs???? ACEO is the acronym for "Art Cards Editions and Originals". An ACEO is a small piece of art that can be defined by it's convenient 2.5 x 3.5 inch size. (Standard trading card size)
ACEOs are VERY different from trading cards however, because they are CREATED and traded or sold by artists. All my ACEOs are absolute ORIGINAL pieces of art! (Some artists choose to sell prints of their work -'editions' )

ACEOs are created in any medium available in the art world. Artists are creating them in ALL kinds of styles and varieties. There are no rules limiting the artist, outside of the size dimensions. ACEOs can be framed, propped, used as bookmarks,grouped together in larger frames......use YOUR imagination! Trading Card notebooks, sleeves and holders can all be used to display them.
