Crazy ACEO’s Craze

So, I decided to try a few ACEO’s, I believe it stands forArt Card Edition Collectables. My mistaken assumption was that I could whip them off fairly quickly, thereby afford to sell them for much less on ebay. Well…let’s just say, that I could have finished three 6″x8″ paintings in the time it took to do four of these little suckers, and the fourth is not fit to show you! It’s hard to get convincing detail into a 2.5″ x 3.5″ little square!
My brain feels like it’s going to explode!!! The good thing was, that I could work on them at the kitchen table with the kids running around, I didn’t have to hide in my studio.
My poor baby girl is sick right now, though! ArRrGghhh!!! What I wouldn’t give for daycare sometimes. Not when they’re sick, I mean, but on other days, so I could get something done.
Any other artists out there have any experience with ACEO’s?
Are they worth the time and effort? I want to paint big!! Really big, actually. My arm is starting to cramp and pretty soon I’ll need reading glasses, or to paint under a magnifying glass!

After a tumultuous past as a goat milker, laundress, fine art major, waitress and restaurant owner, I've now downscaled to running my own Cafe/Gallery in an effort to maintain a social life and make a few bucks. I live a ridiculously idyllic existence in a fairytale village called Bella Coola on the West Coast of British Columbia with my charming musician husband, two amazingly creative children, and a dog whose favourite past time is eating rotten dead fish and rolling in poo. In my not so spare time I love to invent healthy whole food recipes, write YA fiction, play guitar, or curl up in my favourite chair with a great book and a gigantic mug of strong black coffee, all while daydreaming of living in Ireland...
