Calico ACEO

Title: Calico
Size: 2.5 x 3.5 inches
Medium: Acrylic
Support: Multimedia Artboard

This is not one of ours, but I just had to paint her. Love the light and shadow on her face that is also divided into two colors by the white nose. Very interesting marking for a calico!

This is on eBay. To see the listing, click here.

Akiko, this one has a very elegant feeling! Unique markings indeed, and it's neat having that single glint of light in the eye on the dark side. It's haunting, but in a mystical way, like a cat totem.

Akiko, your work never ceases to amaze me. Your paintings are so realistic you may have to start feeding them Friskies.

You never cease to amaze! My jaw drops once again in amazement!

Try as I might I cannot figure out what ACEO stands for.

Diana Marshall said...

You must have the patience of a saint! to paint each hair and whisker and those eyes amazing!!

artbyakiko said...

Sally, R, and Diana, thank you so much!!

R, ACEO stands for Art Cards Editions and Originals. Basically, any artwork with a size of 2.5 x 3.5 inches, which is also the size of playing cards, are ACEOs.

Dean Grey said...

Akiko, this is amazing!

ACEO's are so small. I don't even know how you did this. It's just too detailed and tight for a work of art so tiny.

Some of the best miniature art I've seen!

Just a phenomenal job!!
