Beach Day

Beach Day  7x5" 
Oil on canvas board
Donated to Arthouse 5x7 Invitational / SOLD
Gallery-wrapped canvas prints available. Contact me for prices.

Last June I spent a week at South Padre (with my hubby, parents and brother) for my birthday. Was a wonderful time and I took a ton of pics. Just now getting around to painting some images. This one was donated to the Arthouse at the Jones Center for their annual 5x7" Art Splurge and Art Social events held last Thursday and Friday nights. The Austin exhibit extends thru June 12 and then the work travels this summer to Dallas and Houston. If you really want it, all 5x7's for this show are $150, so you might just swing by the gallery or email the gallery and see if they will sell it outside the exhibit space. They did receive 1600 submissions. The parties were a blast as always!! :)

Such a fresh, spontaneous painting!
I love it! The umbrella is fun and playful! This event sounds like such a great idea, and good fund raiser, too! Wish that I could be there!

Une très jolie peinture remplie de sérénité et d'une belle harmonie de couleurs...
