Well, I thought I found a way to help supplement my retirement when I joined DPW but as I said before, sales have died completely for me here this year. The sales in my gallery were made on Ebay. I am hoping things will pick up here soon or I will have to leave the site and I do love DPW and hope that doesn't happen.
Yes, I was in on the birth of ACEO's on Ebay and they were quite a collectible and still are, but not to the same extent. Its a great way to collect an artist when you can't afford their larger paintings. Incidentally, it took us years and years of begging Ebay just to get a sub category in the Arts categories for ACEO's and I know during the earlier years Ebay was making out just great commission-wise on these little paintings.
By the way, the only requirement for ACEO's is that they be 2 1/2 X 3 1/2 inches. I even have some made of metal and I've seen some made of glass too.
