    Hi Jeff,

    Nice painting, as usual! I just noticed you put me under your links–thanks! I need to get started on adding links on my blog and will surely put yours there, as I truely do enjoy seeing what you’re doing next.

    I too have been toying with the idea of doing some ACEO size pieces at a different price point and probably a little different subjects from my norm.

    I’m curious to hear your thoughts on this. How would you reccomend a collector display them? I’ve considered building some type of frame that would have perhaps six or nine 2.5″ x 3.5″ windows allowing someone to keep adding to their collection in an easy and encouraging manner.

    Thanks Martin!

    That is an excellent question. As I sell all of my paintings unframed, I haven’t given too much thought to that recently.

    Some people offer the tiny easels and small gallery frames for ACEO format paintings. I’ve never been overly impressed with that approach, they usually look a little too “crafty” and amateurish to me. The best presentation I saw was with the miniature mounted in the center of a dark board which was placed in a professional 8×10 gold-leaf frame. It looked great, but it’s obviously a more expensive approach, and somewhat counter to the affordability of miniatures.

    I love your idea of the multi-painting frame, especially because it encourages active, ongoing collection. The larger frame could also give it a more substantial feel. I might try to spend a little time making a prototype of that; if I do, I’ll share it with you.
