An Apple or two a Day. Failed Watercolors, Cropped for Sale as ACEOs
An Apple a Day
Do you have any watercolor paintings that are duds? I sure do, and sometimes I find a little portion of the art that is worthy of saving. I do a lot of ACEOs, 2.5 x 3.5 inches, more than 850 as of this writing. These two apples were part of a failed 9x12 exercise done in my weekly watercolor class. As a large painting, it was unremarkable. So, I used a mat with a cutout made for ATC cards to find the paintings I wanted to preserve. I like the still life food paintings as miniatures.
With a little line work and chopping, I have two apple paintings to sell
Since I have so many art cards in my inventory, I have a section in my Ebay Store where I offer over 50 Artist Trading Cards for $5 each. That way people can buy art at a reasonable price and become a collector of my art.
