Spring ACEO with Miyabi Chiyogami Paper

Here's another flower in my ACEO series. The flower is cut from some beautiful origami paper called Miyabi Chiyogami; it's printed with pretty spring colors and a morning glory design.

The flower is collaged onto a piece of matboard that I painted with transparent washes of acrylic paints in brilliant spring colors.

The card is standard ACEO size: 2.5 x 3.5 inches. It's an original. It's signed and titled on the back.

The ACEO is available for purchase in my Etsy shop.

Hi Karen,

I just wanted to let you know about a new online forum in which you can share your ACEOs and other forms of art, The site gives you a gigabyte of space to show your portfolio, doesn't take a sales commission, and translates any writing into ten languages. I hope you take the time to check it out and even create a page for yourself there!

Hi, I am organising a worldwide Artist Trading Card project and hope that this interests you and your readers.

I am attempting to amass a large collection of portraits of Frankenstein's Monster in as many different styles and in as many different media as possible as an ongoing art project. The only stipulation is that the size is 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches (standard artist trading card size) and that each card has name, date, title and anything else you care to add on the back.

I welcome cards from both amateur and professional artists.

I will be leaving blank cards with instructions and mailing address in galleries, colleges, art shops, on buses, handing them out in the street and wherever else I can think of.

If you think you can spare the time to produce a little something, please send a portrait to:

A Patchwork Of Flesh
45 Silversea Drive
Westcliff on Sea
United Kingdom

Each card I receive will be uploaded at to produce an on-line gallery, I then hope to put on an exhibition of these cards in a gallery.
