Painting of Golden Tabby
In previous years the town of Lunenburg held an art show for small format art. Small Format art, often abbreviated as SFA, is tiny, collectible, affordable art. Different people and organizations have different definitions on the maximum dimensions ranging up to about 14 inches per size. I personally prefer my SFA to be around 5"x7". This is a little larger than an ACEO which, according to the ACEO website must be 2-1/2" x 3-1/2". The ACEO dimensions are perfect for the vibrant group of collectors because the cards can easily be stored and protected in binders, folders and cases designed for baseball cards. But the ACEO is sometimes a little too small to be hung on the wall. The larger 5"x7" SFA is big enough to look great on a wall, and it is easily framed because the 5"x7" is a common, standard frame size. If you don't have wall space, the 5"x7" SFA provides a unique decor when displayed on a bureau, mantel or counter top.
I painted this acrylic artwork on a canvas that wraps around the edges so that it doesn't need to be framed. The gold swirls and purple background wrap around to the back.
Work In Progress
Acrylic Paint on Stretched Canvas
I've started painted some 5" x 7" canvases for a small works show later this year. I envisioned this painting as being an orange longhaired tabby on a background of gold paint. Once again the paint has a mind of its own. I'm not sure what this painting will end up being called, if there will be any gold in it, or even if the cat will be orange.
