Art Cards, ACEO’s and Small Format Art

Art Cards, ACEO’s and Small Format Art..that is actually how I got into the business of art, about 8 years ago..I was swapping art cards..both prints and originals and then I saw on Ebay how they were being sold…hundreds a day..so I thought..wow this would be fun and it could really supplement my income and pay for my art supplies..Lolol..little did I know that it would turn into a full business..well not just art cards but selling my creations and starting a business. Never would I have thought that I would make a living or earn money as an artist.  But the truth is..that is how it started for me..with little 2.5 x 3.5 inch cards (either I cut my own from 140 lb watercolor paper) or you can buy from Inchie Arts (they are very high quality and very sturdy..like miniature canvas boards..I love Em).  I love small format art and its easy “takealongability”..and quick turnout..especially for someone like me who gets bored and easliy distracted..i love to change up things daily and that is why small format art is great..here are a few Im working on again…Ive had some request for these and its been a few years since I created any new ones..

most of the time I just create with ink and watercolor or liquid acrylics..and sometimes watercolor pencils as well..I always need to wear my glasses and sit very close to the table..like about 7 inches from the table top..I do very intricate marks and lately its been a little harder to see these fine lines.. Lol …you can use anything you like to create these..collage, thick paint. pencil..just ink.. Gelli Plate ..markers..etc..so give it a try..and share your pieces on my page at  https://www.facebook.com/RobinMeadDesigns  …I’d love to see what you come up with..maybe we can do a swap if you like..!

here are some from years ago:
