"The Lion Tamer" in the Spotlight

Well almost the spotlight... 

I'm happy to announce that my painting "The Lion Tamer, The Incognito Project" has been named a finalist in The Artist's Magazine's 28th Annual Competition, figure and portrait category.

They say that the model is half the success of a figure painting and I think Peggy proves that true. She was willing to play along and share her fierce side with me, a side that not many people see. She also has a great energy that was a joy to try and capture.

Here are a couple more posts about this painting, they include details of the painting and a painting I did of this model 8 years ago.

Here's the first Incognito Project announcement, a portrait series I've been working on since June 2010.

 Here are all the posts about this Project. 

 You may see the paintings that are finished thus far on my website's Incognito Project Gallery.

Also...I'm launching a new email Terry Strickland Art Newsletter using mail chimp, if you didn't notice it on the sidebar you can subscribe here. The newsletter will be monthly, not too long but chock full of news about up-coming shows, new paintings in the works or fresh off the easel, workshops, possible teaching tips, art world musings and lots of pretty pictures :D


  1. Congratulations on being chosen as a finalist in the Artist's Magazine competition. Your work is superb and deserves to be a top prize award winner. My fingers are crossed.

  2. Thank you Deborah, I appreciate it but the winners have been notified and will be announced in the Dec issue 2011, always a great issue. Basically if you get notified that you are a finalist it means that you didn't win one of the top 3 awards or an honorable mention. I guess I should have made that clear in my post. Maybe next year :) That's what keeps us entering right?
