HONORABLE MENTION in Portrait Society of America's 'Member's Only Competition'

I'm honored to have received an "honorable mention" for my painting Hello Up There, which was also featured on the cover of American Art Collector (December 2010 Issue 62 - as seen in my previous blog post).  The Portrait Society of America introduced several new categories to their annual Member's Only competition this year, including the category my work falls within - "Outside the Box."  Being the first time I have entered this competition, I'm pleased to have my painting accepted within such a great group of work!  Congratulations to all the winning artists!   Click here to view all the winning work from the "Members Only Competition." Here is a breakdown of the categories in this competition:

Landscape (figure is optional)
Still-Life (figure is optional)
Commissioned Portrait
Non-Commissioned Portrait
Outside the Box - an innovative composition that stretches boundaries and presents a unique perspective using traditional techniques and aesthetics
