There is a warmth and depth to this original miniature by well-collected artist David Laurence that is hard to capture with photographs. Working with a blend of watercolour and acrylic with a glaze medium, the artist has created a naturalistic portrait with a rich, glowing red background. This ACEO is ready to fill your choice of frame, having been professionally mounted in a subtle off-white shade using only certified conservation-grade materials. A Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist is included.
ACEOs (Art Cards, Editions and Originals) are compact and affordable, and they are a wonderful way to build your personal collection of unique artwork. Fitting into small 8” x 6” frames, you can display these versatile miniature marvels in so many ways. You might like to use a free-standing frame to fill a gap in a shelf or bookcase, for example. If you have a collection of different-sized pictures and photographs running up the wall alongside your staircase, maybe there is an awkward-shaped little hole crying out to be filled. Or perhaps there is a small space between two doorways or windows in your home that would benefit from a burst of colour.
