Pack Rat Life, New ACEO’s And Some 4×6’s

Working small as of late. Sometimes working small is great because it can make you feel more accomplished. Just the act of finishing something feels good. Especially, for art procrastinators like myself with a dozen or more unfinished paintings in the studio. Speaking of studio, have you seen where I’ve been working the last month?

Yeah, I don’t think I’ve mentioned it yet here on the blog, but Neal Breton and I were forced out of our Paso Robles studio by the sassy little cry baby bitches that run the joint. Anyway, I’ve been working at home in the garage, which has proved to be challenging. Somewhere in the back there is a little table that you can’t see in the photo and that’s been my work space for the past four weeks. That’s probably another reason I’ve been on this small painting kick. Anyway, for those concerned, we just signed a lease and paid rent for the new home of our Fiasco Gallery and we hope to open to the public in a couple of weeks. More on that later, including the addition of rock star artist Bret Brown to the roster. And speaking of rent…

Here are some new ACEO’s, which are business card sized paintings.

If you purchase any of these ACEO paintings I found some nice frames for them at Michael’s. They were double matted and the opening was made for this size of art/photo. I’m sure Aaron’s Brothers and other similar stores all have at least one frame that would work for this size.

And here are three new 4″ x 6″ paintings done in the same style, just bigger. These are a much more common size and every place that sells frames will have a lot to choose from in this size.


“The Salesman”

By definition ACEO’s are small. They have to be 2.5″ x 3.5″ to qualify as a true ACEO. I think it’s super fun to make these small paintings. If you are looking for something larger you can see all of my available originals at http://www.etsy.com/shop/jeffclaassen?section_id=5058508.
