Framing Little ACEO Paintings

How to Frame an ACEO

Since ACEOs are so small, it looks really cool to mat and frame them into an 8x10 inch frame. I love the drama of either a white or a black mat with the little work of art floating in the middle. Even though this one is set in a wooden frame it has a modern contemporary flair.

This is also a sneak peak at Painting A Day: October 20, 2010 - Autumn Brown Drops

ACEO = Art Cards, Editions & Originals
ATC - Artist Trading Card

Pretty much the same, a 2.5 x 3.5 inch little work of art created in any medium. They can be originals or print editions. All of mine are original watercolor paintings. ACEOs are bought and sold. ATCs are traded. It's a great way to start or add to an original art collection.

Things are beginning to get back to normal here and I am doing my best to get my Painting A Day Challenge posted to my blog again. I have managed to get all of September's Paintings up on my website. Take a look here: Painting A Day for the Month of September.

I love the small paintings in the big mats. This gives the painting air and makes it even more beautiful. Like a rock surrounded by metal becomes jewelry; like water surrounded by trees becomes lake; the painting in the mat becomes more complete and ergonomic :)

Thank you for sharing Rita,
