5 X 7 oil on board
This tiny little painting was one of my submissions to the annual 5 x 7 show at the Austin Museum of Art -Art House. Each Artist is asked to submit two pieces with the dimensions, yes you guessed it, 5 inches by 7 inches. All pieces are anonymously displayed and at the stroke of 9:00 p.m. the show-goers grab the ticket for the piece the are interested in. I was quite excited to learn that of over 1300 pieces of art my piece was one of the first to be purchased. In typical Austin style, there is live music and scrumptious food and you can step out unto the roof to see the beautiful Austin skyline. It is a great event with a wonderful festive atmosphere.
