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.

Title: Mylo is a Wino

I know what you’re going to say. Valentine’s Day? Already?

Yes, I admit it’s early to be thinking about Valentine’s Day. We have weeks of wind, snow, and COLD to get through before we reach that one, fleeting, warm and fuzzy, pink bright spot in the shortest month of the year. But it’s cold out there! All of the twinkling lights of Christmas and New Year’s are gone! We need a little sparkle in our lives — we need PINK!

Here’s a look at some of the PINK hanging out in my online shop. Click HERE to see even more — and stay warm!
