I love doing these little ACEO’s (Art Card Editions & Originals) in between larger paintings I’m doing in preparation for the Red River Revel arts festival in just three weeks. Painting in this small size is a reminder that simplification of my subject along with the bold colors I love can make a big impact, even on this small scale!
