Blue Hydrangeas ACEO Floral Orinigal Painting

3.5"x2.5" oil on fine canvas board
Here it is, the second one in my series of floral ACEOs painted from life! These little oil paintings were quite fun to create.  I began this little series in September before the first frost up here in CT, so I was able to bring in lots of nice cuttings from the garden!  I'm usually not great at keeping a secret for very long at all - I wanted to bring this series out in time for Christmas and holiday gift shopping.  Hey, they make nice little hostess gifts for some one even at Thanksgiving! If you bring your hostess live flowers, she's got to stop cooking and put those things in water right away (which can be a problem if you're in a tight cooking schedule in the kitchen).  Give your hostess a painting of flowers - she can be looking at it while she's cooking, doesn't have to stop & get a vase....AND - they NEVER DIE!! woohoo- and that makes you a wonderful guest!

It has been several years since I have used eBay as a place to sell, but I did enjoy it back in its 'heyday'.  I've begun a new series of ACEOs,  so far all florals - and I knew eBay would be the perfect place to highlight these! These little gems make a perfect gift idea! 

For those of you not familiar with the acronym ACEO, it stands for Art Cards Editions and Originals.  The miniature paintings are the size of a baseball trading card, 2 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches.  This category of art has become increasingly popular on eBay the last couple of years.  These can be displayed on their own, or with a tiny little easel (like the kind you can find in Michaels Arts & Crafts type stores) on a display shelf, or these beautiful gems can be elegantly matted and framed with perhaps a mat of 4 inches wide.  ACEOs also make wonderful gifts!
