Re:ACEO's 4 Years ago  
Hi Gina,

I enjoyed your blog! I love the clay with the fabric heart in it (even with the crack ) And you really got me with those tea quilt postcards!!! I'm a total tea fanatic... in fact, I'm a reviewer on "The Tea Review Blog"!

Oh... but your mugs!!!! Oh my... I'm ready to throw out my whole cabinet and fill it with your mugs!!! I'm heading of to visit your Etsy and 1KM stores - thought I'd have some fun window shopping. You are very talented!!!

Thanks for the comment about the Lemon-Lime ACEO. It's interesting you say that, because I'd never thought of doing that before! But it was a challenge for a watercolor group I'm in and we were all posting our paintings, with our 3-4 color swatches and the mixes we made... so on a whim I included that in the listing. Maybe I'll do that more often

~Melanie

Thank you Melanie!

I just had a look at The Tea Review blog ...what a fun site! I just read about African Rooibos, which I had not heard of before this week, when my husband brought me a selection of teas back from a trip.

I also found your Your Tube video - beautiful! And how cool that you and your son worked together on it - his music is great! I think it is appropriate to post your link here as you have some of your ACEO's there .... http://www.youtube.com/user/thecreatorspalette

Here's one of my ACEOs, (I just found my images on a disc, thought I'd lost them)


Moving on from ACEOs I also found OSWOA's to be quite fun to do. Standing for 'Original Small Works Of Art', they have to be 6 x 4 inches (and be original) I found that they allowed a bit more scope for creating a good composition, slightly less restricting than the 2.5 x 3.5 ACEOs. I found these attracted fewer bids but higher prices than the ACEOs when I was selling them on Ebay.

If you lend someone £20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

Hehe! That's such fun. So much work in it though. If you can only sell it for $12 which seems to be the going rate, then it's really not worth it in my opinion. Maybe the OSWOA's may be more interesting.

I have never been able to sell on ebay, I could never understand how to work things there and my things never got looked at. It was a while back now, maybe I should give it another try. Is it any good as a venue for selling art?

Fun ACEO MightyFine! I didn't know that postcard sized works are called OSWOA's. Many fiber artists create that size for actual postcards and they are simply referred to as quilted postcards although many are not for posting but instead are small art quilts. Is the term normally reserved for fine art works?

Oh dear... oh dear... I don't want to bring up controversy here.

I'd better move onto a new forum topic in painting...

OSWOA is not a term that is often searched for. It too was something someone on eBay tried. But they also tried to "trademark" the term and the size of art! Postcard sized art has been around forever. You can't trademark it. And do you as an artist really want to put your art under the control of someone who trademarked a "term" ? I want to keep control of my artwork.

So I call it 4x6 or postcard art. Enough said. I'm sorry if I offend anyone with these statements. I really really don't want to argue - want comradeship and mutual support here!

BTW - "MightyFineArt" - I love your dog ACEO! Great work!
