Do You ACEO?
What is an ACEO?
ACEO stands for Art Card Editions and Originals. They are cards of artwork measuring 2.5 x 3.5 inches, about the same size as a standard playing card. These cards are very collectible since they don’t take up much space and are an affordable way of collecting original art.
I’ve gotten a lot of questions from fellow artists about selling online in this economy. (Which is kind of funny because I wish I had all the answers!) What I can tell you is, since the DOW took a dive last year my ACEO sales have picked up to the point where I can’t paint them quickly enough.
Posted here are two of my most recent ACEOs. While these were created using two larger paintings as the basis for them I will also paint these outside on location. They are especially handy when I want to try out several compositions before I start a larger painting.
If you haven’t tried painting an ACEO I highly recommend giving it a shot!
