Art: Belladonna by Artist Hiroko Reaney
Original ACEO by Hiroko Reaney. The Belladonna is an extremely toxic yet valuable medicinal plant. Children should especially be warned because the sweet berries can cause coma or death! The name means "fair lady" in Italian and long ago, Italian women used this chemical substance produced called atropine to dialate their pupils so their eyes would be more beautiful. Two other chemicals called scopolamine and hyoscyamine are the basic ingredients for a variety of antispasmodics that are prescribed to treat intestinal disorders. The reason I added a fairy is because I love Fantasy Art and wanted to express how this plant may seem beautiful but can be very dangerous. This is a very tiny painting! It is part of my Fairy ACEO series. Please see the close-ups to see how much detail is in this work. It's very pretty to view and all done by free-hand, no masking tape. ACEO stands for Art Cards Editions and Originals. The standard size is 2.5 by 3.5 inches. They are made by various artists and can be any media. ACEO's can be displayed in a frame or collected in a book. It is a growing trend on ebay. Type 'ACEO' in the search box to see all the great art. I list new pieces as they are completed so please check for new listings daily. Thank you for viewing!
