Chasing a Hudson River Sunset

Chasing a Hudson River Sunset
2.5 x 3.5", Oils on Canvas mounted to 100% rag paper

Here's yet another miniature painting. I really enjoy doing these, so on days when I don't have time to do a larger painting, they're an ideal format. This one was done from a photo I took a couple of nights ago while chasing the sunset from one location to another by the Hudson River. It was a beautiful fall evening, with lots of folks out enjoying the unseasonably warm fall weather that night.

In the art world, ACEO stands for Artist Cards Editions and Originals. They are collectible paintings in a standard, miniature format. The size is 2.5x3.5", like baseball cards and playing cards. They are so much fun to paint and collect that every so often I do a few of them. Some artists sell prints of paintings in that size as ACEOs, but mine are always one-of-a-kind originals. ACEOs are truly fun to collect for those who love art. Everybody can find a place for these little gems, and they are reasonably priced. It's an easy and relatively inexpensive way to acquire work from some favorite artists.

Nice colors I have always love the yelloe withthe violets.

I have a problem doing the really small paintings and give you credit, I don't think their easier to do than the larger ones.
