The Artist's Magazine, 26th Annual Competition

"The Ascent" has won Honorable Mention in The Artist's Magazine's 26th Annual competition in the Portrait/Figure category putting it in the top six of the competition! This is the cover and it's in bookstores now.
The painting and excerpts from an interview are on page 56 of the Dec 09 issue. I'm honored the piece was chosen by Nelson Shanks, the juror for this category. He is esteemed portrait artist to Princess Diana, Bill Clinton, The Pope, Pavarotti and founder of Studio Incamminati a school for studies in realist art.
"The Ascent" is part of my Building a Life Series and is 55x32. The painting is on display at Principle Gallery in Alexandria, VA.

 Also finalists in this year's competition were my paintings "Carpe Diem" 48x36
 and "Angle of Repose" 36x27, also part of the Building a Life Series.
More work from this series and others can be seen on the website Here are a few details of "The Ascent".
