Part of my life was spent in Japan. I developed a fondness for all things Japanese. This is an ACEO called "Geisha's Menagerie". ACEOs are always 2.5 x 3.5 inches and have been created, traded and collected for centuries.
Beginning with sturdy poster board, Franz Kline’s “Accent Grave” was the backing. I added a piece of book binding from a 1925 book, a strand of black wool from a Oriental rug dating back to the 20s, and ephemera —the beautiful geisha, a gentle black and brown bunny and a cocky crow. I then gave the ACEO several coatings of varnish. SOLD.
