Pocket-sized Watercolors (New ACEOs/ATCs)

I am working to add more items and update the others on my etsy shop, http://www.musicalcolorstudio.etsy.com …it is a work in progress, but soon there will be more holiday cards, a few of the textile prints that I featured on here a while ago, and some newly updated product photography. I hope you check it out!

Today I was able to add some new ACEOs also known as ATCs also known as “Art Cards Editions and Originals” or “Artist Trading Cards” A.K.A. some mini original paintings on small 2.5″x3.5″ pieces of paper. Phew. I thought I’d share some with you and you can find the rest of my  ACEOs here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/MusicalColorStudio?section_id=11861651

Color, Artists without Art Forms, and Visible Thoughts

“Color is my daylong obsession, joy, and torment.”

Claude Monet

“Like any artist without an art form, she became dangerous.”

Toni Morrison, Sula

“Visible things can be invisible. However, our powers of thought grasp both the visible and the invisible – and I make use of painting to render thoughts visible.”

Rene Magritte

Finding the Story Inside the Painting

For anyone who is not familiar with art, has never taken an art history class, or feels lost and out of place in an art gallery, this is the video for you! That’s my sales pitch to watch this TEDTalks lecture by Tracy Chevalier.

Chevalier’s process is a non-intimidating approach to art that doesn’t scare anyone away because s/he doesn’t have a degree in art! It’s simple: look at art and tell yourself a story about it. So go to museums and galleries and just LOOK! Then tell yourself a story, ask yourself questions, draw connections to your own experiences, and then maybe you’ll start thinking about how the artist created the piece, its historical context, whatever! It will just start to flow! No fear!
