Portrait Society of America Annual Conference

Bart Lindstrom signing his Mystery Sale Painting
Just returned from the Portrait Society of America Annual conference where John Howard Sanden was the recipient of the 2010 Gold Medal. What an inspiration John is as well as all of the distinguished artists there in attendance. 
I had just the best time with a fellow painter and dear friend who I met sixteen years ago at a workshop with Mr. Sanden at the Art Students League in New York City. 
Bart Lindstrom, a superb artist from Atlanta painted in the opening night face off competition, gave an instructive and entertaining discussion on color during one of the Friday break out sessions and contributed to the Mystery Art Sale. And...my friend won his exquisite little painting.
How lucky Mary is to have that beautiful painting to take back to her home and studio. Congratulations Mary and thank you Bart for the photo op!
