A New Set of Musical ACEOs

YEAH! I've finally had some time to do some painting.

Here's something fun I just completed - a set of matching (sorta) ACEOs.

Here's how I made them.

I began by painting an abstract painting. I've just purchased a book about painting abstracts. You can read about it here. Painting Abstracts

Then I painted some long curved piano keyboards. My wife thought it looked really cool, but I had other plans for it.

I then mounted playing cards (which I do for all of my ACEOs) on the back of the painting not being too concerned about where exactly they ended up.

After that, I cut them all out.

I think they ended up looking really great! I think they would make a perfect gift for a musician in your life.
You'll be able to find these in my Etsy shop

Thanks for sharing your process, Lyndel. I love the rich colours in these aceo's, and the movement the keyboard creates. I like the idea of mounting them on playing cards!
