"Red Pitcher of Daisies" - ACEO - Miniature Floral Oil Painting

    3.5"x2.5" oil on fine canvas board
    (link to auction is scheduled to go 'live' at 5:30pm EST)
    For those of you not familiar with the acronym ACEO, it stands or 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 king 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 (truly royal on a linen covered mat, just ask your framer!!). ACEOs make wonderful gifts! The gift of original art is truly a thoughtful treasure! I had less than a handful of these tiny ACEO canvases...so I do hope you win the auction bid on your favorite one!

    It seems I only have time to do these little gems at Christmas- perfect for me as I wind down a busy year of larger works, and perfect for YOU as a great opportunity for original art at a truly affordable price.  These daisies were cut just before the first big frost here in my New England garden, the same day I cut a huge batch of zinnias as well.   I knew I couldn't paint them all in a day, so I used every last one to put in a variety of vases, to paint summer flowers later in my studio.  These are wonderful little studies for larger paintings. 
    Today the snow is falling outside, and I'm so glad I have these paintings and photos to remind me that summer will be here once again...in all its colorful glory!
