‘Striped Cat on Windowsill’ by Eleyse Gottman | ACEO
This striking miniature is the creation of illustrator and maker Eleyse Gottman. A striped cat sits on a windowsill, nestled amongst houseplants, watching a pair of butterflies fluttering past outside. The artist has achieved a particularly bold and colourful effect by working with gel inks on a rich green card base. This original artwork is signed and dated by the artist on the rear and has been professionally mounted with conservation-grade materials in a subtle off-white shade.
ACEOs (Art Cards, Editions and Originals) are compact and affordable, and they are a wonderful way to build your personal collection of unique artwork. Fitting into small 8” x 6” frames, you can display these versatile miniature marvels in so many ways. You might like to use a free-standing frame to fill a gap in a shelf or bookcase, for example. If you have a collection of different-sized pictures and photographs running up the wall alongside your staircase, maybe there is an awkward-shaped little hole crying out to be filled. Or perhaps there is a small space between two doorways or windows in your home that would benefit from a burst of colour.
