I’m so pleased to announce that “Poppet” took Fourth Place at the Portrait Society of America’s International Portrait Competition this year! The other events of the conference went very well too. My demo for Natural Pigments paints went off without a hitch and I enjoyed participating in the Face Off event on opening night. As ever, the annual conference was a perfect opportunity for us to catch up with friends from all over North America whom we only ever see once a year. A big thank you to the staff of the Portrait Society of America for pulling off another great conference.
