Funny Little Cat Paintings

Once or twice a year I sit down and paint ACEOs. An ACEO (Art Cards Editions and Originals) can be made with just about anything as long as it abides by one rule – it is 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches – the size of a trading card.

I found ACEOs on eBay in 2007 and credit them with sparking my interest in painting. Prior to then I had mainly used paint to make accent marks on my 3d sculptures. ACEOs sparked my interest in selling my art online too, and I sold quite a number of them — some flat paintings, others collages, and of course, many 3d-ish forms with polymer clay sculpture resting on a 3.5 inch by 2.5 inch painting.

My paintings have grown in size, considerably in some cases, and my subject matter has expanded — but it’s still fun to sit down and create something SMALL. Here’s a look at the first, perhaps only, batch I’ve made for 2017.

It’s Chet’s Birthday! He’s a bit of a pyromaniac — you can see it in his eyes.

Title: Mylo is a Wino

Since painting this Mylo has told me he’s more of a craft beer guy than a wino.
