In May of 2013, I had the privilege of attending the Portrait Society of America Conference. Im a little late in writing about it. My piece “Life 2” won an award of Honor. I also participated in the face off event of which I won the peoples choice award and was asked to do a painting demo for the conference attendees. Below are a few pictures of the event . The sketches are by James Gurney who drew as he watched many of us work (he is amazing). This April I will be attending again as part of the staff. I Hope to see some of you there.
