ACEOs on the Web

I have returned to painting my favorite motif: the nude figure. Recently I have been doing small nude figure drawings for my ACEOs. What is an ACEO? ACEO stands for "Art Cards, Editions and Originals". These cards have one rule: they must be 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches - the size of a trading card. They can be in portrait or landscape. I have several of these mini paintings in my Gallery Juana.etsy.com shop, and I continually add more.

I spent this morning browsing websites that feature ACEOs. I ran across several sites:

Acetsy

A popular Etsy BB thread on ACEOs

ACEOS on Etsy


Collage ACEOs on Flickr

Original (not print) ACEOs on Flickr

Watercolor ACEOs on Flickr

Figure (mature content) ACEOs on Flickr

artcardswanted : another venue to buy and sell these small works of art.


This link is unrelated to this topic, but I thought the digitial images were interesting.

I love ACEO and this one is lovely. I also cruised backwards on your blog and found your information about cameras. I'm going to read that more tomorrow, since I will be getting a new one soon as well.

I'll send you a rabbit....there is a whole family living in my front yard...and you know how they multiply!

Glad the camera info will come in handy for you. Have fun with your new camera!

Thanks for the ACEO lesson! I don't own any, nor have I made any... but they're sure pretty!

I really like this ACEO. I like the writing in the background of the figure.

First time reading your blog (I linked from Etsy) and just wanted to say your work is just stunning! You seem to have a wonderful knack of knowing just how much is enough, and I know for one how very hard that can be (serial fiddler!). Will def be looking in hee again...
