Original ACEO Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Green Pears'
Oil  2.5" x 3.5"

My very first ACEO!  Very different to be working at
this ultra-small size, but I have to admit I really enjoyed
working on this.  The hard part is that you must get up and
put some distance between yourself and the painting to
really get the whole picture of what is going on with the work,
just as you do with larger paintings.  I am already planning
my next one... 

If you would like to see more of my work,
please visit my website or my blog. If you are
interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see
here on this blog, please contact me.

I find these little paintings are quite a bit like potato chips.... Nice job on these pears, they are just awash with sunlight!

It's a very nice piece, Claire. I agree with Autumn, it would be a nice note card.
