Addicted to ACEOs

My fist post in ACETSY blog yaay!
I currently have the minimum 5 listed in my Etsy shop, come and see HERE

Also I have some past work to share, I will list them soon:

The great advantage of Etsy is the long time they are listed online, and after keeping some of mine for months and some of the years, I can tell you, the benefit of using quality paper and paint is that they look like I painted them yesterday.

I made a series of ACEO with water-mix oils on canvas, and I never listed them because I couldn't decide if I wanted to trim them to card size, or leave them with the edge I tape them to paint them, in case the buyer wanted to frame them. I guess I can put that in the listing, so they can decide what they want. I personally like them both ways.
What do you think?

The lady with the earring is so pretty.

I paint on already trimmed to size paper, this way I don't have to decide. :)

Beautiful ACEO's!

Very nice! I'm with Rita - I trim my paper before I paint - it's simpler for me and I have better compositions if I do. *lol* otherwise I get lost on the paper and meander with my drawing =p

Pam of Always Artistic said...

LOL I do both, But usually I start with bigger paper and trim later just because I'm lazy! :)

Thanks for the coments!
The one I tape is canvas, as in fabric to paint, not paper, which is difficult to paint if not attached to something :oP I don't like to paint on something floppy. hehehe The watercolor paper is sturdy so I don't tape it.
