Each piece is 3.5 x 2.5, the show requires work to be matted (not framed) in plain 8 x 10 or 11 x 14 matts. I have never presented my small works this way until now and may start using matts instead of shadowbox frames going forward.
I don't have a photo of the 3rd piece in the matt, here it is alone -
My other bit of news is a few months ago I had submitted my contact information on the Dick Blick website in hopes I would be selected to be a featured artist in one of their catalogs. I received a call from them on Friday and have been chosen to be featured on the back cover of the summer issue of Watercolor Artist magazine! I will have a copy of the ad once it has been finalized and I look forward to purchasing a copy of the magazine once it's released.
The best things happen when you least expect them.
