"Wisdom Inc." ACEO Oil figure, owl, painting

"Wisdom Inc." ACEO 2.5 x 3.5 inches, oil on panel.
This one has been accepted into Austin Figurative Show, a juried show sponsored by Austin Visual Arts Association.
Show runs March 29 -- April 11, 2010.
Artists' reception, April 3, 6--9 pm.
Where: Austin Art Space Gallery
7739 Northcross Dr., Ste. Q, Austin TX USA.

The leaf represents impermanence, and the rainbow represents beauty in nature that is fleeting, yet forever renewing itself. The owl, who is supposed to represent wisdom, is focused on obtaining the key. The hole in the hat is a reminder to lighten up and not take things so seriously.

Detail, with American penny to indicate scale of artwork.
