Today I'm featuring one of my art cards or ACEO's. ACEO's are miniature pieces of art.
ACEO stands for "Art Cards, Editions and Originals". These cards are always 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches which is the size of a trading card. Cards will be sold either as originals or editions. Make sure you know which you are buying! If it is a print it should say so, and it should be numbered and signed, usually on the back.
Art Cards were intended to be traded! In the past artists would swap these trading cards. It was difficult for the public to obtain these cards. Now you can bid or buy the fun original pieces of art. You can obtain these little precious pieces of art from artists from all over the world in different mediums and of different subjects and in all style of art work from Realism to Abstract and everywhere in between. Frame them or trade them. These are collectable and now very affordable.
This one is of a largemouth bass. It's in colored pencil on black suedeboard. Titled "Largemouth". Here's the link to the listing in my shop LARGEMOUTH Now for another feature!
