I know I've already been talking about this painting a lot recently since it received the Best of Show award in the NOAPS annual exhibition. Well, the December issue of the Artist's Magazine has been released and I can now tell you that the same painting has received an Honorable Mention in the Magazine's 30th Annual Art Competition in the figure and portrait category! I'm honored once again to be in the company of so many great artists including fellow Illuxcon exhibitor, John Jude Palencar, who took first place in the same category. Below is the cover and my own section of the magazine, but go check out all the other great art in this issue on the news stands or order your own copy right here.

And again, because I don't like to post here without showing new work, below is another alla prima painting from the portrait night that I attend. This model was dressed so nicely and sat in such a nice pose that I had to do more than just her portrait.
