August 28, 2008 Mini Collage ACEO ATC

"UNTITLED ON PURPOSE" - ACEO - the size of the traditional ATC (Artist Trading Card) 3.5 x 2.3.
This collage was created on 120lb watercolor paper. The background is acrylic paint, brushed, dripped, and drizzled on. The body of the collage is mainly dried acrylic paint peeled from my palette. The King of Spades is from a miniature deck of playing cards.

I have often incorporated dried palette paint in my collages. Naturally they lend themselves quite well to the acrylic medium I use to adhere them.

This ACEO and the previous (3) were sold on eBay to a buyer interested in magic. I never considered the playing cards would spark the interest of a magician. What luck that he found them in his searches.
