Appaloosa ACEO


'Stars and Spots'
ACEO ( 2 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches)
Watercolour painting

I painted an ACEO yesterday - it's amazing how quickly you get out of the habit of working in miniature. I found it quite a struggle to paint so small! After much deliberation, I decided to list it on ebay. Ebay as a venue annoys the crap out of me at the moment, but is IS where the majority of the ACEO collectors are, and being realistic, I do need to sell some work, as that large vet's bill arrived (it was even bigger than I imagined!) and my car is on it's last legs.

A beautiful ACEO! It should sell on eBay, but things have been moving slow there too lately.

It's beautiful I'm sure you'll sell it at a good price. I've been feeling the same about ebay, I have sold a lot of paintings there but it comes with it's own problems when you accidently sell to a dealer who then rips you off. Once bitten as they say!x

He is stunning!!!I can so relate! I keep spendig money listing just to move it to Etsy in the end. You have a large following I'm guessing - maybe that will work for you!!! Good luck!!!! Sarah

It's a beautiful small painting. I also think it would look wonderful done very large. Your work is always wonderful.

It's lovely.I am really looking to receiving my ACEO's from you. I understand about working in miniature. I find it really difficult after doing only floorcloths for so many years, but I do love a challenge. Yea, ebay is a pain!

Beautiful Work Danielle.. Yes it is a totally different way of getting paint on paper when shifting from large to small.. we have to push ourselves don't we..
Good Luck to you on Ebay and with your car...
