APS Entries Ready to View

In a previous post I showed my entries into the Austin Pastel Society Annual Juried Member Show coming up soon.  You can go to the Austin Pastel Society website and see the entries and/or watch a slide show.  There is some beautiful work there.  The competition showcases some of the best work in our membership.

Of course the best thing is to go see the paintings in person.  The chosen paintings will be exhibited March  and April at the Corridor of Art in Austin.  I will be posting the info soon.  In the meantime save Sunday, March 17 for the reception and awards show.

Here is what two of my paintings look like framed.

Aubergine and Company, Pastel on Pastelbord, 11 x 14 inches

Salsa Fixins', Pastel on Pastelbord, 6 x 12 inches

They are framed with the glass right against the board and taped to seal and then popped in the frames.  It is easy to change the frames if you would want to do that.  They have museum glass, so there is not as much reflection from surrounding objects, windows, etc.

Wow. Some of those paintings are gorgeous! As usual, I suppose, eh? :-)

Joanna, yes, there are some great artists in the Austin Pastel Society. It is always a beautiful show especially in person. See ya...

They look really nice. I like the now mat look.

Hi Bag Blog, Thank you. I like framing pastels this way. There is no dust falling on the mats and with museum glass, they almost look like oil paintings.

Kat, thanks for stopping by. You have a nice blog, too. Fun to see your work. See you on the Hunts.
