I've recently been notified that my new painting titled, "Present Company Excluded," has received a Certificate of Excellence Award in the Portrait Society of America's 2011 International Portrait Competition! I'll be traveling to Atlanta the last weekend of April to accept the award and attend the annual PSA conference, which looks like a lot of fun. The competition recognizes only 35 paintings out of over 1,750 entries this year so I feel highly honored to receive this award. You can see some of last years award winners here.
Present Company Excluded - Oil, 18 x 24 inches
Also coming up, tomorrow I will be an guest artist at Montserrat College of Art, north of Boston, to give a short talk about my work. I don't know if it is open to the public.
