Cuban Tinajon & Bougenvellia ACEO

Copyright 2010 Maria Soto Robbins

This impressionistic painting was done in oils with palette knife and brushes and it shows a traditional Cuban earthen water jar used in the province of Camaguey. The Spaniards brought these clay jugs to Cuba and it's become a historical, tradition of the region. The little red-pink flowers have a raised, thick, impasto finish. It's almost three dimensional.

ACEO stands for Art Card Edition Original, miniature original paintings or prints, a mere 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches in size. They are affordable works of art that can be framed, kept in albums, in your wallet, used as a bookmark, or anywhere you like! ACEO's are a wonderful way to build a collection of art miniatures from a wide range of artists at a fraction of the price of a large-scale original.

Dimension: 2.5.x3.5 x1/8 inches masonite
Media: Oils
