My Entries for Austin Pastel Society Annual Juried Member Exhibition

The Austin Pastel Society is having their Annual Juried Member Exhibition with Juror and Judge Claudia Seymour.  Each member could send in up to three images.  I submitted these three:

There is some stiff competition! To say we have some very talented artists in this group is an understatement. Whoever is selected, their art will hang in the Corridor of Art from March through May. We will find out who has been accepted in February.  So. . .here's hoping I make it!

Does one still say "Break a leg" when an artist submits pieces to a show? I wouldn't be surprised if you got all three in Karen!

Karen, these are great. I love the grape leaves. Beautiful use of the color and composition.

Hi Sheila - thanks so much - I hope you are right about all three getting in - not the broken leg part ;-)

Thanks Jo - I hope we both get in.

Linda thank you - I appreciate your comments so much!

Hey Barb thanks and yes you are right that is an elk. His fur was fun to do.

Sam - thank so much - I will let you know how it turns out ;-)

Hi Pattie - I hope so too - thanks so much for you support. I'm glad you like these - that is always nice to hear.
