ACEO sale in Simona Candini Ebay Shop! 50% off! LAST ONES LEFT!

Hi everybody,
as some of you already know, I've discontinued my ACEO Card Limited Ed. print series because I've been so busy concentrating on my original paintings a lot and preparing for upcoming shows.
I do love ACEOs, but it takes so much time to create each of them, and lately I'm not having enough time to continue making them. I'm a full time artist, caring for every aspect of my job 24/7 by myself and so sometimes I have to sacrifice something to be able to focus more on my new projects.
I'm not sure if in the future I'll offer again ACEO prints, but in that case, probably I'll make only ONE ACEO for each new painting I'll do.

In conclusion, now I'm offering at a very special price the ACEOS I've left in stock! :) There will be no more like these ones, so grab the last ones when you are still in time! :)

Hi Everybody,
I have some uptades regarding my art and products for sale.
As some of you probably already noticed, I had to take a break from doing ACEO cards  lately. I'm very busy with my original paintings, I'm having some shows to prepare, several commissions  I'm      working on and a lot of new projects in my mind that I want to start soon. I will probably list some of the ACEO  I have left in stock at a special price shortly.
I'm not sure if/when I'll offer LE ACEO again, I'll keep this blog updated.

I've also made some room in my Ebay and Etsy shop for my new Limited Edition Prints.
