Spring Color - ACEO/ATC





”SPRING COLOR” by Kim VanDerHoek.

2.5 x 3.5 inch ACEO/ATC original oil painting on canvas paper mounted on acid free cardstock.
$15 (Shipping $1 within the U.S., $2.50 for Canada or $5 for everywhere else)

This week I stole a few hours to play with some paint and my palette knife. It’s a great exercise that helps me simplify shapes and forces me to make bold color choices. Because these are so small, I can’t get very fussy and put in every detail. I like the spontaneous feel of this one.

ACEO stands for Art Card Editions and Originals. They are cards of artwork measuring 2.5 x 3.5 inches, the same as a standard playing card. These cards are very collectible since they don’t take up much space.
