BEST Team Feature - Boretto Art

Raised beds on Planet Joy 
The garden soil has been prepared, deeply dug and turned with the addition of rich compost, and the seeds have been planted. Now we await the magic of nature, in a few weeks we will enjoy spinach and radishes and the tender young lettuce and mustard greens! The enjoyment of fine gardening comes not only from the finished garden but from the path you take to get there. As gardeners, we spend time planning and designing our garden in the first stages. And finally, our enjoyment of fine gardening will be fully realized when we see our plants growing, spreading and blooming, and finally ready for the table. What is growing in your garden?

A classic theme with a modern twist, the Green Water Lilly painting  will bring a positive aura to your home. The colors were chosen to inspire a peaceful romantic feeling subject as green is known to soothe and helps to bring a feeling of calmness along with a sense of harmony.

  3. Despite all the water we're getting at the moment (much needed, but darn painful if one is arthritic!) that painting of the lilies is gorgeous! So peaceful and soothing.

    1. Many people are unaware of how incredible collecting ACEOs can be! The acronym ACEO stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals. They can be original art, print editions or photographs. ACEOs are miniature pieces of art that measure 2-1/2" x 3-1/2". This is a very affordable way to collect fine art on a budget.

  5. Love this post! Just finished doing your feature and remembered how you love to garden...okay, I am inspired and getting out there! Thank you also for explaining the acronym ACEO...sometimes we forget that the world outside doesn't know the acronym, like trying to interpret medical terminology. This is the best explanation I have seen on ACEO and how great a genre they can be for collectors! Thanks Joy!
