Transience of Innocence - Honorable Mention in Pastel 100

"Transience of Innocence" (pastel, 26x19 inches) sold

I've been bursting with excitement, and had to wait to brag that my painting Transience of Innocence has won an Honorable Mention in the Portrait & Figure Category of the Pastel Journal's 20th annual Pastel 100 competition. A very grateful thank you goes to Diane Rappisi who juried the category!

An image of the painting will be published in the April 2019 issue of Pastel Journal. This is very exciting, as there were more than 2,000 entries!

You can read a bit of the exhibition history of Transience of Innocence on this earlier blog post, and see all the progress shots here, including the photo composition!

Thanks for reading! :)

Cluck Kent

"Cluck Kent" (pastel, 8x6 inches) $300 framed

Today I learned a bit about how to tell a young hen from a young rooster. Needing to name this one, I wanted to get it right, so I found this handy blog and decided that this is a cockerel (a young rooster) based on the size of his growing comb and wattles.

Cluck Kent will be with me at the Bayou City Art Festival in Downtown Houston, this weekend October 13-14, 2018. Come out and enjoy the weekend and this glorious fall weather! Find me in booth #350 on McKinley Street.

Donna Kia

"Donna Kia" (pastel, 12x6 inches) $400 framed

I'm finally back to some inventory boosting after several weeks of commission jobs. I do enjoy commissions, but there's something to be said for not having to answer to anyone's expectations but my own! (And then I can never post the commission results until after the gifts are given ...but I want to post them NOW! So the finish is sometimes anticlimactic... )

Donna Kia will be with me at the Bayou City Art Festival in Downtown Houston, Octover 13-14, 2018. Come on out and enjoy the weekend! Find me in booth #350 on McKinley Street with many of my summer paintings!

Here are progress shots of Donna Kia:
