Sweetly Fragranced, From Me to You

If you remembered my last post on creating ACEOs, you'll know how much these little pieces of art have changed my perspectives completely. Of course, after that I now spend more time creating them because it turned out that it's a really good way of exercising my skills in refining details and compositions. Well, there's always room to grow and improve, don't you think?

These are my recent ACEOs. They're inspired mostly by the Inspiring Word of the month I'm using in my other blog.

Lily, 2.5"x3.5", acrylics on paper

Iris, 2.5"x3.5", acrylics on paper

 Rose, 2.5"x3.5", acrylics on paper

 Daisy, 2.5"x3.5", acrylics on paper


I'd like to think that each girl represents the characters of each flower...what do you think? Have I at least nudged it a little? :)

Well, I hope you like them. They're all available in my shop, spreading lovely fragrances among their fellow artworks!

Hugs, Amalia, oxox


  1. These are just lovely....and I enjoy seeing a small drawing that unless I am told the size, just plain WORKS. ;-)
    Working small really does help I've found.
    And I also enjoy that tiny amount of space, seeing just what I can get in there and have it look proportionally correct.


  2. These are just beautiful, hardly seem small until you mention it. I love doing ACEO's too.

  3. Okay I just folowed your other blog as Victor Hugo. don't know why, I would like to follow under my real name... Roger Walldleslop. Hmm.

    Well here are the four muses, all confident, heroic, and yes definitely of different characters - each to their own. But I always suspect they are different sides to the artist's personality....

    Maybe I am wrong.
    Beautiful as always. :)

  4. Your drawings are just lovely...so, so pretty, and what a talent you have! Great blog too!

    Liesl :)

  5. What beautiful set of prints! They all go together so well.
    Loads of love!

  6. Wow!! I just love them, Amalia!! I'm amazed at what you've achieved in such a small space!!

  7. they are all lovely Amalia. I especially like the first two.

  8. They are all simply gorgeous, Amalia. They do indeed represent the flowers they are so lovingly named for. Great work! Theresa

  9. Sweet and tender drawings... I would can live into them for years...

    Thanks for sharing! :-)

  10. Really gorgeous Amalia. I love these floral ladies! I have never tried this size art, but I am amazed how much detail you fit into these! Just lovely!!


  11. oh Amalia, they are beautiful! I love them and that they are flower ladies is quite sweet. How fun to see you challenge yourself. I have been doing that but not with good results :-)

  12. Mmmmmm, what is that fragrance? I followed it all the way here.

    Oh, Amalia! It's so hard to picture them as petite, because they are so big on beauty and personality. There is so much detail and finesse in these that they could easily be large pieces. You have a most elegant garden, my sweet!

  13. Beautiful faces, expressive big eyes, lovely hairs, different characters and hidden biographies behind the slight smiles... Your drawings are marvellous, Amalia! As always! A hard work for you - an enjoyment for us! My favourites are Lily and Daisy. I tried to imagine each girl with a different flower, but I couldn't!:)x

  14. Thank you for dropping by, friends! I loved reading all your comments... I'll visit your blogs soon! *hugshugs*

  15. I can definitely see the character of each flower reflected in the beautiful ladies here, so delicate and gentle, dreamy and whimsical, just the way in which I see flowers themselves :) This is a lovely idea Amalia, and it's so well executed too, your art never fails to impress me!


Tell me your lovely daydreams, they always make me smile! ♥
