"Her Finest Silver" ACEO Blossoms in Silver Pitcher - sold

3.5"x2.5" oil on fine canvas board

It's been a while since I've painted any of these fun little ACEOs...I decided it was time again! It was also nice to have a tiny picture...of a pitcher of flowers in the studio today, too! Flowers are the best antidote to winter. Spring is also here in southern New England!

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!

Breathtaking colours in these last two Roxanne. With a wide mat they would look like little jewels.

Thanks Sheila! Yes , I was thinking that would be a great way to frame them, too- mount them on perhaps a wide linen mat- that would be really nice! So glad you like these!!
