Adventures in Artistic Creativity

A Rose by Any Other Name (ACEO)

ACEO stands for Art Cards Editions and Originals. This is a miniature art piece done in the standard trading card size of 3.5 x 2.5 inches. These are small paintings that fit into readily available card sleeves and pages, they can be stored in an album, framed in a group, or given as a unique gift. ACEOs are affordable, diverse and highly collectible.

This art card was painted with watercolor on Saunders Waterford 300lb. CP (NOT) Watercolor paper. It’s a very thick paper with a deep surface texture.

This is my second ACEO with many more to follow. I decided to reproduce one of my larger paintings that has since sold. These fun little paintings are quite enjoyable to create. My grandfather cared for several hundred rose bushes in his yard. It was alway quite a site to see. For this reason, roses have always been one of my favorite flowers. I suspect this little art card will find a home very soon.
