Mixed media collage ACEO on cardstock with water-soluble oil paint, decorative paper, a scrap from a 1939 Methodist Hymnal, and a gauzy topping of tea-dyed cheesecloth.

A few years ago, I came into possession of a worn, navy blue hymnal. Written in pencil inside (with impeccably neat, girlish handwriting) was the name, "Sandra Sue Simpson." Since then, I've used Sandra Sue's hymnal in countless projects, always thinking back to my own upbringing in a small town Methodist church. I wonder if Sandra Sue sang in the church choir like I did. I wonder if she had a crush on a boy in a pew across the aisle. I wonder if she's still alive to hum all these familiar tunes, if they became a part of her soul, as they did mine.

2.5x3.5" Signed and dated on back. This is shipped in a glassine kraft envelope, ready for gift-giving.

ACEO (Art Cards Editions and Originals) are an inexpensive way to begin an original art collection. At 2.5x3.5", they're the same size as baseball cards, making them easy to collect, store, and display. Like all my originals, this piece contains real vintage ephemera rather than digital prints or reproductions. When you buy a Palimpsestic original, you'll find yourself holding items used and (I hope) loved by someone 50-100 years ago--real pieces of history combined and turned into something new and unique.
