The juror was Desmond O'Hagan - PSA Master Pastellist. The show (50 paintings) will be displayed until May 3rd at Chase Bank Corridor of Art, 700 Lavaca, Austin, Tx, 78701.

Earlier today I got the following two paintings accepted in the 1st Juried Competition/Exhibition with the Texas Pastel Society in San Antonio.
