Coming Soon! "The Art of the Portrait"

Coming in April to Philadelphia, Pa is the Portrait Society of America's annual "Art of the Portrait" conference. This will be my second year attending and I'm looking forward to the many opportunities to have my portfolio reviewed, talk with portrait brokers, see demos and attend the breakout sessions, including a drawing workshop with Anthony Ryder.

Kind of reminds me of a Star Trek convention, without the vulkon ears--all those people wandering around, speaking a strange language with words like claybord, trois crayon, hue & value, high key. Where else can you walk into a room full of painters excitedly discussing the work of John Singer Sargent? Yes, we're portrait nerds, but we're proud of it!
