Miniature Watercolor Painting of African Violets

Purple African Violets
Miniature Watercolor Painting
 
Once in awhile I like to take a break to paint a miniature.  Something small and simple and colorful.  Uncomplicated and loose and fresh.  Usually it's an ACEO, which stands for "Art Cards, Editions and Originals".  These are 2.5" x 3.5" pieces, the same size as baseball cards, and they are a very popular size with art collectors.  They make great gifts and are perfect for office art and desktop art.  Some people display them in clear plastic covers or in albums.  I prefer to mat them to fit into little 5" x 7" gold frames.  I have quite a few listed in my Etsy shop, including this one.
