Classic Red

Many of my eBay collectors have asked me to paint one of my classic red doors in an ACEO format. I’m fairly well trained, so here you are: Classic Red. A happy red door cradled by Trumpet Vine, Sunflowers and Pink Hollyhocks. I begin by doing a simple sketch of the basic layout with a #1 Filbert brush dipped in a wash of MUD (Ultramarine Blue + Alizarin Crimson) + a liberal amount of Liquin. Just like my larger pieces the wall and door are painted next.

For those of you unfamiliar with the term, ACEO stands for Art Cards Editions and Originals, a category on eBay that has become quite the rage for collectors over the last few years. The painted image is required to measure 2 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches, the size of a baseball trading card. To learn more about how I prepare the support for my ACEOs CLICK HERE. The terra-cotta tile floor is painted, followed by the Trumpet Vine and Hollyhocks. To see any of the images enlarged just click on the picture.

Classic Red       ACEO     3 1/2 inches tall and 2 1/2 inches wide

This is an Original Oil Painting on Strathmore archival linen and is signed on the back. Several of our Team Senkarik members collect these little originals and frame them in a regular frame with a wide, 4 inch matte. The ones we’ve seen look pretty cool. Bidding for Classic Red on eBay starts at a penny. That’s right, one cent!  HURRY, the auction will end on Sunday, May 27 at 9 PM Eastern Time. So HAPPY BIDDING! Hugs, Mikki Senkarik
