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.
