Little Card

I have been so inspired by Serena's mantra card that I decided to make one for the last day of Fire Day in the Soul Coaching program.

The affirmation was yesterday's- "Incredible creative life force flows through me."

It is hard working so tiny! From start to finish, it was about 5 hours of work last night.

3.5 x 5"
Gouache on Canson Montval Acrylic (185 lb/400 gsm) <--- great paper by the way!

  1. Very cool! Not to be niggly, but technically an ACEO is 2.5 x 3.5", the size of a trading card. But do more paintings like this, whatever the size! I like is a lot!

  2. LOL thanks Dru! I changed the post title!

    This was so tiny to work on, I don't think I'd want to go even smaller!

  6. FANTASTIC card, Jessica!!! Wonderful affirmation too! I'm thrilled to have inspired you!!! I think you should aim for a deck of cards too.

    I'm glad you like the paper. Mine says - CANSON Acrylic, Mixed media paper for acrylic and gouache, 300 GSM, A3 (297 x 420 mm).

    I see that your paper weight is 400 gsm which would be even better!

  7. I love the idea of a deck of cards like this. Great affirmation too. Are you going to do more? or is the small size too frustrating?

  8. Oh how neat, Jessica! It does look like the creative force was running through and around you and juices falling on you too! Awesome! I DO think you would like making the ATC cards also! They are a lot of fun!
