Richeson International 75 Figure/Portrait 2016 Competition

Two of my paintings, Pete and So Many Cats (Portrait of Matthew Innis), were selected to be a part of the Richeson International 75 Figure/Portrait 2016 Competition held at the Richeson Gallery in Kimberly, Wisconsin. The paintings will be on exhibit October 21 – December 3, 2016.

I would like to thank Awards Juror William Schneider for awarding Pete an Honorable Mention, and the Richeson Gallery for selecting my work to be in the show.
