Day 28 of 30 in 30

"The Crowded Street" ACEO

For Sale on DPW: 

People line the streets during Mardi Gras, so I probably would not like it. I hate crowds. But here is my version of a crowded street. This was painted entirely with my left non-dominant hand, including the liner work and my signature, for a challenge here on DPW. The washes, which I do first, were pretty easy, but trying to control the liner pen with my left hand was quite a challenge. Oh, that's right. It was a CHALLENGE. I have been trying for a loose, free style, and this actually does not look that different from the others I have done for 30 paintings in 30 days. In fact, I think I like the scribbly look somewhat.   Could be a bunch of kids playing Ring Around The Rosie, or whatever.  It's kinda abstract.

ACEO refers to the size - 2½” x 3½” - also called an ATC or artist’s trading card. Signed by artist. Complete contact info on back - comes in a protective sleeve.


  1. I'm pretty impressed with how much life this piece has for such a small size and for using your non dominant hand! Love your use of color. :)

  2. Thanks, Crystal. I love it, too. Sometimes I am not satisfied with my work, but these little paintings are so much fun, and so satisfying!
