Life Imitates Art

Finally finished one of those paintings that never quite say "I'm done."  
Today...I'm saying done! 

This one's different for me....from a photo I took when visiting Ireland @5 years ago....the Statue is of Patrick Kavanaugh, a much loved bohemian Irish Poet in Dublin and a commuter...both apparently oblivious to my picture taking.  

Well years later this is my pastel tipping my hat to them both. "Life Imitates Art", pastel, 11x15".

Surprise - I won People's Choice for Best Portrait at latest PSNC Exhibition

The Pastel Society of North Carolina's latest member show at the Halle Cultural Arts Center in Apex, NC is exhibiting until November 15 - try to catch it.  About 44 pieces exhibiting a variety of subject matter, several winning People's Choice Awards.

Lucky me won the People's Choice Award for Best Portrait with "Autumn Goddess"!

My friend caught me with her cell came out despite the flash :)

I also have two other pastels in the show featuring my deer paintings.

Try to make the exhibit - you're sure to enjoy it!

Happy Painting!
