Original paintings in a variety of sizes coming this fall 2019

about.

   I am a self-taught artist living in Tubac, Arizona, just north of the Mexican border. I have been painting since 1998 and my styles include naive, folk and primitive.

   After selling successfully for many years on ebay, I have decided to design my own website and sell my original artworks, Postcards, bookmarks, and coasters directly to you.

   I hope you like what you see and thank you for stopping by!        

 

The aceo format

     I have painted and sold over 1000 miniature ACEO paintings over the last few years and I am a big fan of the format. But what is an ACEO anyway?

     The short answer to this question is that it can be nearly anything, as long as it measures 2.5 by 3.5 inches (or 3.5×2.5″). These artworks are usually paintings or drawings on canvas boards, canvas paper, or stiff art paper. I have also seen embroidery on cloth, carved wood, and collage works on various types of papers and cardboard. The finished product is then tucked into a transparent sleeve to protect it. I like to varnish mine with a UV protective coat or two to ensure its longevity. The back is usually left ‘raw’ (you can expect paint or ink splotches here and there) with the artist’s signature and creation date written in pencil. Since the artist is creating in a similar way as when doing larger works, the recipient or purchaser is able to see and feel a sample in real life; an experience for which a picture on the internet is just no substitution.

     I currently sell these on ebay (starting at $7.50) while at the same time working on larger works for this fall. Aceos provide the perfect format for experimentation for later paintings and collages and gives the purchaser an example of the artist's professionalism.

Below are some example of my recent ACEO sales.
