Nothing like going from one extreme to another. Last week's painting was 4 feet by 8 feet. This one is 2.5" x 3.5". It is an ACEO which stands for artist's cards, editions and originals. These are artists trading cards which are a good way to collect different artists original works in a small, inexpensive way. I did this one while I was sitting by the pool in Mexico. You can't get much more relaxed than that. It is done with colored pencils on a smooth bristol board

This isn't a typical weekly painting since it took over a month to paint but I wanted to post it for this week's painting since I just got it hung. It is 23 canvases painted to hang together in an abstract collage. It was fun to paint but also a challenge because I used acrylics (which I haven't used since high school) so they would dry quickly and I could get it to Mexico. The original reason I used a series of small canvases was because it was a good way to get a large painting to Mexico on the plane. It fit neatly into our luggage. The largest canvas is 10" x 20" but the overall painting is about 4' x 8'.
I'm leaving for Mexico tomorrow for a week so I am posting this early. I didn't want to miss a week. I've been painting a large project that I'm taking to Mexico and finally finished it so I only had time to do a quick watercolor sketch for this week's painting.
