"Primary Abstract" New ACEO

Created this one in a slightly different way.
Started out with larger sheet of 246 lbs acid-free paper and trimmed it to the 2.5" x 3.5" when it was done. Ink and Watercolor.

Another New ACEO based on Sculpture

another new ACEO ink and watercolor
Based on an old 5 inch x 7 inch relief bronze plaque I created in 1991


An old 4 x 6 ink and watercolor from 2001

Floating Polyps

This is a very new colored pencil on bristol paper (6 inches x 6 inches)
It is an alien landscape of growing bubbles or polyps near a liquid shore.
I sent the trimmed original to a friend as a mix CD cover! top picture

Yet another semi-abstract ACEO

This one just happened.
When I originally drew it, I knew exactly what colors were needed.

remember: ACEO is "Art Cards Editions & Originals" and the only rule is:
2.5 inches x 3.5 inches (the same size as a baseball card)


I made this way back in college days. 1982 I was very interested in Philip Guston's work and especially his changes in style. To me he was like the David Bowie of fine art. I painted this on paper 46 inches x 62 inches (Approx 4 feet x 5 feet) with acrylicl gesso and cheap tempera paints. I signed it " Ralf Guston"
What a weirdo. I haven't tried to search yet, but I believe this is based on one of his actual paintings, probably titled; "Book, Bulb, Bottle and Brush"

Another Abstract ACEO

(c)2010 Ralf Schulze
This started out as a test paper for the watercolor for my older ACEOs (scroll down!) but when I showed the actual Set of ACEOs to my friends, they really liked this one. I added to it since then: additional ink and color pencil but the original watercolor is still there.
(1-2-2012) Gave this to my Mother!

A fun little artistic history of mine.

The Original big dry pastel work is approx 9 ft x 6 ft (3 meters x 2 meters). I did it in college (1982) on grey theater backdrop paper. I wish I knew where it was now. I showed it in my first solo show on campus at the Student Union Gallery at Stony Brook (that's where the photo of Mik Rez and I was taken).
From that photo (probably in 1983) I drew the picture (image is 10 in. x 13 in.) using india ink, prismacolor pencil highlights and (originally) black marker which has faded through the years showing pinkish/orange/yellow tints...
I just found the drawing a few days ago and had to make 2 scans and meld them together on the computer. Comments welcome!

My First ACEO (Art Card Editions or Original)

(c)2010 Ralf Schulze
If you do not know about ACEO's, they are Art Cards (2.5 inches X 3.5 inches) {same size as a baseball card!}. Many People make prints of larger originals, therefore the "E" for Editions.

I prefer the "O" for Original because it is a challenge to make a good detailed work of art in this size.
That is the only requirement for an ACEO! The Size. A cool concept and a great challenge!

So here is my first venture into it. I want to sell this and future ones, and I will keep the copyrights to use the image. Drawn in ink and colored in watercolor on smooth, acid-free bristol board.
I gave the finished Art Card to my old friend Bernie in Wyoming!

I did this around 1983-84 when I would sit in on Robert White's life drawing classes at SUNY Stony Brook after I graduated.
