‘Old Cat in Bowl & Geraniums’ by Carol Biss | ACEO
A charming miniature artwork that neatly illustrates the cat motto: “If I fits, I sits”. This bright and colourful ACEO from Dorset artist Carol Biss has been fully matted with a bevelled window mount and protective undermount in a subtle off-white shade from the Larson-Juhl ‘Collection’ conservation-grade range, and is ready to drop into the frame of your choice.
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.
