This Austin print of bats flying at Congress Bridge making the perfect wall art for Austin and nature lovers of this pastel sunset of the Austin Skyline. Born and raised in Austin, I have watched the bats fly from under the Congress Street bridge at dusk my entire life. This nostalgic, old Austin seasonal tradition of watching the Mexican bats migrate is wrapped up in my memories with all this gorgeous sunset light reflecting off of Lady Bird lake, and the iconic shapes of the Austin skyline, including the glowing Frost building. Sunset watching at Congress Bridge -- in my humble opinion -- is one of the best things to do and see in downtown Austin, Texas. 

Made with nostalgia in Texas, this retro-vibe artwork adds a colorful and unique feel to your wall space for all those that call Austin home, or the perfect gift for those with happy memories of this much loved Austin hotspot! This archival print is from my original gouache painting "Austin Bats at Congress Bridge."  

This is an hand-signed archival print, not an original gouache painting. 

This fine art print was created using very high quality materials including pigment based inks and archival papers. In order to keep your print in great condition it is important to frame with archival materials (mattes, backing board etc), keep out of direct sunlight, and frame with a UV glass.
