ACEO - Peony Ruffles-SOLD!


3.5"x2.5"

Another absolute garden favorite is our white peony! It's fragrant, and would make the most exquisite perfume (in my humble opinion)! It's not over-powering, delicate...but able to hold its own among others in the garden.  Perfect for a wedding...that's what's on my brain lately. I'm down in DC, painting while my daughter is at work this morning. Late this afternoon, her sister and I are going to join her for wedding dress shopping!! Yes, we have a wedding to plan in our family!!! Happy times!!
  
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.  
So, each year I have time to make just a few of these...and there's never any leftover. Here's your chance to join in on the fun and have one of these dear little mini's.  If you've just GOT to have it, and you can get to it before the first bid is placed, you may buy it out-right (and avoid the whole bidding process) at the buy it now price.  AND, my Christmas gift to you, FREE shipping!

This has such a beautiful harmony, Roxanne.
I have never tried these small cards but know it must be hard to get something so small look like a full sized painting. Congrats.

THanks so much, Julie! These small ACEO cards have been fun to play around with various ideas, some familiar & some new. They also force me to condense things down to the'very basics'...and are helpful for quick value studies.
