2.5 x 3.5" Watercolor on paper ACEO
This small painting of beautiful flowers in a garden is an original ACEO painting. I used watercolor crayons in a variety of colors to express the peaceful afternoon shade in flower gardens.
For those not acquainted with the term ACEO, it stands for "Art Cards, Editions and Originals". They originated with Art Trading Cards (ATC) among artists. The dimensions (3.5 x 2.5") are the same as other trading cards. They are very popular currently.
Purchasing an ACEO is an economical way to collect original art. Some people have large collections of these. There are special display cases for them as well as other accessories. I like to see them framed in a group matting. Little colorful gems that are one of a kind!
This gem of a painting is varnished, ready for framing display.
