Pastel Painting accepted into the Austin Pastel Society Show

I was pleased to open my e-mail and find that my painting, Hill Country Autumn, was accepted into the Annual Juried Member Exhibition for the Austin Pastel Society. You can see a slide show of the paintings that were accepted into the exhibit and another of all the entries on the Austin Pastel Society page. There were 96 entries and 50 selections. The awards will be given in March at the reception. The paintings will be up from March 7 - May 2 at the Corridor of Art - 700 Lavaca, Austin, TX 78701. I will post an invitation and map as the event approaches.
