the vision

Art Cards Editions and Originals also known as ACEO's are about 2 ½ X 3 ½ inches or roughly the size of a baseball card. I love them. I have four and have many, many, many more in my Etsy favorites. The best part about these is that you can get an original painting for little to nothing. The most I have spent on an ACEO is $20, usually they run around $10. While talking to my sister the other day she was telling me she hasn't caught the vision of the ACEO paintings. Here is the ultimate vision.
ACEO's are perfect for adding to a larger collection because they throw in a smaller dimension. I started building my painting collections with ACEO's because they are affordable. Now that I am building my art collection with some larger paintings I might try something more along these lines.

I also love the thought of a large collection of JUST mini paintings, not unlike here.
The thing I love about these is there is so much room for flexibility and it can be budget friendly. You don't have to only have 24x36 inch paintings. You can have 5x7, 8x10, 4x4 which will all be easier on the wallet.


So that is the vision.

Coming up next: some favorite ACEO's from Etsy.
