ACEO ATC Pop Art Doodle

Hidden picture doodleArtist trading cards are 2.5" x 3.5" and were traditionally traded among artists and were never intended to be sold. ACEO, art card editions and originals are an off shoot of that tradition and are original works of art that are sold. The only rule is that they be 2.5" x 3.5" (the same size as a baseball trading card. The cards typically fit inside a plastic sleeve but some artists develop a more dimensional style and and the thickness can vary.

The painting is an abstract watercolor that I embellished with India ink. I like that the piece can be displayed on all sides and it reminds me of vintage pop-art. My only self imposed rule for this style is I can only work with existing shapes.
