I’m honored to have received a 4th place award for my painting Action Fingers, along with honorable mentions for "Spud" Jones and Mademoiselle K in the PSoA's Members Only Portrait Competition! The Portrait Society of America introduced several new categories to the annual competition this year, including the category I was awarded 4th place in – “Outside the Box.” Being the first time I have entered this competition, I’m pleased to have my work awarded with such a great group of artists!
