are just what we need to think about on days like this, when the wind is blowing a gale, and snow is forecast (and that's just the UK!). So I made a series of eight Spring Flower ACEOs, of which this is one. You can find them in my Purelypainting shop on Etsy
Meanwhile, though, here is a preview of one or two! Different people have different favourites, I asked around today! Which is yours?

I have just added this new ACEO - it's called "Daydreaming". It's done in coloured pencil, which is a medium I love but haven't actually used for ages as I've been busy with paint and collage!

"PEACE" is the title of this one. This is the front of this one.
This is the back... I have my signature, the date created and the title.

These ACEOs are doing their best to be just that! All are acrylic on high quality paper, and are amongst the first of the painted ACEOs I've made. I'm having fun...perhaps you can tell! All of them, and more, can be found here
They may be the first, but I doubt very much that they'll be the last! I love working in this small format.

I've been on etsy for some time now, but haven't been making a lot of aceos up until recently... Primarily, I am a jewelry artist, but I'm also enjoying the heck out of getting to play with my paints again!!
Here's my latest piece called Purity.
In many ways, I feel like I'm still finding my own style in collage art, but I enjoy working with inspirational messages, and feelings that make you smile...
Check back soon for more to come in My Shop and thanks for looking!!

Even a couple of ACEOs! Much as I love my artmixter shop, I felt that my paintings needed a room of their own, so now I have a second shop, purelypainting
Which left me in a bit of a dilemma....where to put the ACEOs? Answer...both shops! Mixed media pieces go into the artmixter shop, and painted pieces into purelypainting. I'm just hoping I don't get confused...sigh...
This particular ACEO, Swirl III, is an oil painting on paper for oils. I hope you like it!
