Four B.C.

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.


  1. Congrats!!! Selling at the buzzer at the 5x7 show is a BIG deal. So happy for you. It's a classic piece. Nice to see you posting. xoxo

  2. Congratulations on the show and the sale of this painting. SO sorry to read about your mom. Glad you were able to be with her while she was so ill. She will still be your biggest cheer leader. Thinking of you!
