Feature Artist: Pam Miller

ACEO are all the rage now. I really like these Fall Flowers from artist Pam Miller. I love how the flowers appear to be alive in how they drop their leaves and look up at the sun. They are almost begging for more sunlight. I know I am! This is a Watercolor/Mixed Media artwork on Watercolor Paper. The Art Card Organization explains what ACEO's are: "ACEO stands for "Art Cards, Editions and Originals". These cards have one main rule - they are 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches - the size of a trading card. The reason for this is, of course, that Art Cards are made to be traded! But while artists were happily trading cards, the general public was left out in the cold, having no Art Cards to trade. A group of artists realized this, and quickly made their cards available for sale at remarkably low prices so that everyone could join in the fun! […] Artists from all over the world are creating, and now selling these little gems in different mediums and of different subjects. Watercolor, Oil, Acrylic, Colored Pencil, Pastels, Pyrography, Pen and Ink, Sketching, Collage - the sky is the limit. Abstract, Surrealism, Outsider Art, Impressionism, Expressionism -every style you can think of - and then some!. Every interest and subject is covered! Extremely collectable Pocket Art, you can't stop at just one!" I'm all over this as well. And I might also start collecting them. Really a great way to own original artwork without the heavy price tag. Love it! Pam has several other ACEO's in her shop and also a wealth of other artwork. Never have seen such a filled shop!

Thank you for the explanation! I see the acronym all the time and never knew what it stood for.
