News from the portrait conference

May 3rd-7th, 2007 was the Portrait Society of America's The Art of the Portrait conference in Washington, DC. It was a fascinating experience. There were demos daily, workshops, inspirational "go get 'um" talks from some terrific artists amd speakers, networking, camaraderie and my favorite part, portfolio reviews and critiques. I had my portfolios reviewed by five different artists. It was a great way to get feedback from top artists who work in the same genre. Some amazing artists to check out: Robert Liberace, Daniel Greene and Charles Reid.
