Oh... Look What I Found

 
My attempts at ACOs.

I've been trying to locate my paper palette pad (say that three times in a row) and I came across the ACOs. (Did I post them already?) I didn't locate the palette pad but I did come across these so now I have something to post. Yippee.

In case you were wondering, when I realized (accepted the fact) that my youngest daughter and her two boys weren't going to be moving out any time soon, I collected my art supplies and packed them away as best I could. It made for a better environment. Not so many "No. Put that down. Don't touch. Leave it alone!" And then, a couple of months later, they moved. Now I have junk all over the place... floor, tables, counters... and I still can't find anything. Who knew.

What's an ACO? I mean what do the letters stand for? And if you have posted this in the past, I don't remember it.

Isn't that when one draws very small and it has to be the size of a playing card...I can't draw THAT small, I tried....

Travelling Goddess said...

Oops, forgot to mention that if they are what I think they are...they are very popular, like the trading cards of many years ago. Artists trade with each other these tiny drawings.

They collect them.

Help CC, I could be soooo wrong here.

You're right E....

They are Art Collector cards that have to be drawn on a certain size and I think you're right, playing card size. There is a huge industry in these. It's a way for people to own original affordable art or trade with others...I think its' a cool idea.

These are cool CC. I have a few myself that I've done here and there but they are scattered about!

Well how cute is that !! I like the idea ~ when I started painting it was all cards, but they were 5x7 card stock. How tiny are these??
Like all of them but the turtle, jumped out at me !! And the lady with her gaze at something ???
LOL:)

Good thing Sandy answered the ACO question because I had forgotten what the letters themselves stand for.

Size is ... oh hold on, I have to go measure. Memory is one of the first to go....

2.5" x 3.5"

(blasted memory) Hey Wanda, I meant to say something about the turtle. Now what was it? Oh... yeah.

I was watching a Terry Madden painting show and he was doing a turtle. He said turtle paintings always sell first.
