Zinnias in the Brown Jar ACEO Floral Original Painting

3.5"x2.5" oil on fine canvas board
If you've been following along for the last few days, you're beginning to see a trend here....the third one of my ACEO floral series - Zinnias! We had a bumper crop of them this year. The best thing is, the more you cut, the more blossoms they keep putting out. We had several different varieties, but one that I particularly loved had this deep burgundy maroon color. Of course mixing the color varieties in a bouquet is great fun, too! 

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!
