Nude with News

I can now post a small nude that I painted for the Portrait Society of America's Mystery Sale: Limited Size, Unlimited Talent. For this sale, artists are chosen and given a 6 x 9 inch panel to paint on and are asked not to sign their works. At the event which takes place at the organization's annual conference, buyers bid on the paintings without knowing who the artist of each painting is. It's great fun and it was an honor to participate along side some of the most well known artists working today (secretly.) Below was my contribution.

I've been pretty busy lately and while I haven't been able to post here much I've accumulated several bits of news to share:

My piece, Fairy and Her Steed was a finalist in this year's Art Renewal Center Salon. I'm excited to be including in their new Imaginative Realism category. Congratulations to all the winners and finalists!

Looking Back has been accepted to the Oil Painters of America's First Annual Salon Show in Petoskey, MI. Taking place between June 21st and August 31st, 2013.

Crater Lake received second place in a juried show at Hope Gallery in Bristol, RI.

I'm honored and grateful to be included in all these events!
