I'm so excited to have tried something new today! I started painting miniature watercolors. I painted them in the ACEO format. Art Cards, Editions, and Originals — 2.5" x 3.5". The purpose of painting these is for collectors. Some people collect baseball cards, and now folks are collecting miniature prints or original artwork! What a fun way to have an art collection without spending a fortune.
The only consistent thing I found about ACEOs is the size. Otherwise they can be unlimited prints, limited edition prints, or original paintings. I think I'll start selling these original paintings at my shop www.susanwindsor.etsy.com and I'll also do some limited edition prints. Why not? My favorite part of doing these today was that I could finish several paintings in an hour. I feel like I accomplished something today! Hmmm... what to paint next? :)
