My Original ACEO
ACEO (Art Cards, Editions and Originals), a specific size of artwork that measures 2.5 X 3.5 inches. Very collectible item to keep in an album, or display them on your fridge, group them in a wall montage or display alone. Very flexible art form and a way to inexpensively own original art.
This is one of a kind, an ACRYLIC painting on sturdy 140 lb. watercolor paper. It is titled, signed and dated on the back. It comes in a plastic sleeve for its protection. The painting is actually mounted on a vintage playing card.
This is an original painting, not a print.
I was inspired by wonderful art pottery from the 1940s
art nouveau period.
Clarice Cliff was a famous British artist that created many unusual and beautiful pottery works.
Today her pottery pieces sell for very high prices. I love the look of her art but can't afford her pottery.... so I painted this butterfly inspired by some of her work.
I hope you enjoy this butterfly as much as I do.....
