I finished this piece last night. I started out doing a painting of cherries on rice paper, but I didn't like how the background had turned out. I had previously gessoed and glued gold-inlaid rice paper to watercolor paper (140lb). I cut the watercolor paper to an ACEO size card, then cut out the cherries and stems and glued them to the card. My first ACEO card! All the gold makes it difficult to get a good jpg with my digital camera. A scanner is on my wishlist.
cherries/stems: watercolor, ink, acrylic on rice paper
support: gold-inlaid rice paper glued on gessoed watercolor paper (140lb)
