Three Little Floating World ACEO's

Pen And Ink Fine Art By Doug Ashby
This new world was indeed a strange place. A seemingly physical contradiction. It simply shattered our notion of physics and the universe. For how could a planet be so apparently hospitable to our needs and at the same time so baffling.

When we first arrived we were not sure exactly what it was floating all over the atmosphere. So we decided to get a closer look and what we found will forever change us. It is the reason we call this new world "the floating world." Our best guess is that something in the worlds relationship with the host planet and the other orbiting worlds is causing large swaths of ground to break off and float away. Yet these chunks do not die. No in fact they thrive.

Our first outpost is on one of the larger pieces. We felt it would be safer here, before we see what is below. In many ways I don't want to leave because the beauty of this place is breathtaking. However that is not our nature, nor our mission, and soon we will be moving on once again.

I like to write little tiny fictions about the work I do. For me it adds a little more mystery to the art

itself. Something a little bit further to contemplate. These three ACEO's artworks are part of my larger floating world series. Inspired by both my love of science fiction and what extra terrestrial worlds might be like, and the Ukiyo-e, or floating world art, of 18th and 19th century Japan. An homage if you will to that which attracts me artistically.

All three are going to be posted on etsy today and are for sale. They are $40.00 each. Not bad for original art. If you are interested in purchasing them please visit my shop. You need not have an etsy account to make a purchase and all major credit cards are accepted.
