An ACEO is 2.5″ x 3″ — artwork the size of sports trading cards — otherwise known as a miniature.  I personally love the challenge of painting something that small.

  1. Yes–it’s really just an artistic way of honing in on the trading of sports cards. Although some people trade ACEOs, I believe they must be a rather rarified area. ACE inhibitors aren’t, 🙂 I am enjoying your pursuit of wild lupin!

  2. Television commercials have made me aware of ACE inhibitors but this is the first time I’ve come across any mention of ACEOs. I see that the category goes back only a couple of decades.

  3. YES! I am sure you will like it as much as I do, Sharon. Google ACEOs to see about how to trade/sell them!
