Roses In Amberglass ACEO - sold

  Lots of painting going on lately, just not much blogging. From super small (like these ACEOs) to super large (the 40x30 that's almost finished on my easel), to some sketches for a commission, and yesterday's first plein air of Spring, the paint is flying, now the fingers on the keyboard need to keep up! Thanks for having a look. Spring is finally making its way to New England, and for that I'm so happy! For my northern hemisphere readers, I hope Spring has reached you by now, or signs of it are showing up!

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!
