Excited to announced that I'm starting on these projects:
-Fresno residents Amanda, Tracy and William will pose for portraits. These will be my submission for the Portrait Society of America International Competition. Considered the most prestigious competition in the nation, the Society holds its annual conference in a different venue each year. Next April, Atlanta will be the site. Deadline for submission is 1 March.
At the moment, I'm meeting with the models discussing each composition (mood, attire, setting etc).
-Portrait of Ife: This is my first work for my solo show in NYC at Rio Gallery II, next September. Ife is a life-long resident of Harlem. She has great passion for African dance and for making new friends. She's an amazing spirit.
