Top 100 Secret ArtWorks

If you are not familiar, Secret ArtWorks is a fundraising event featuring the exhibition and sale of 5” x 7” works of art from local, national and international artists. All works of art sell for $75 each. The ‘secret’ behind each piece is the identity of the artist – which is revealed after the work is purchased.
Second year in a row, my work was selected to be published in the Secret ArtWorks top 100 Catalog. I did 3 secret art cards for them, and oddly they picked my least favorite, but it got in there. Here is the one that was chosen for the catalog, which will be on sale at the next Secret ArtWorks event on November 14.

I have 4 cards in the mix this year (note shown for obvious reason), and I think they are some pretty good ones.

So how exactly are they "secret artworks" when you post a picture of one?

It is no longer a secret who did last years. Last year I did three- the bunny and the peeps, a light bulb, which I then hit with a hammer and painted again.
As they are purchased, the name is revealed with lots of fan fair and disappointment.
This years cards are still a secret, though I will give you a hint. Mine are brilliant.
One more hint that may help when trying to find my "secret" cards- nude self portraits.

That would explain the 5x7 painting size.
