Pastel Society of America Exhibition

My painting "Saturday Evening Puzzle" was awarded the President's Award at the Pastel Society of America's 41st Annual Pastels Only Exhibition!  

This painting is a bit of an homage to my childhood art hero, Norman Rockwell.  I just loved his work when I was a kid.  Although my composition was confusing at times, it was great fun to be able to paint his paintings.

"Saturday Evening Puzzle"
18" x 24"
Soft Pastel

The PSA exhibition runs through September 28, 2013 at the National Arts Club in New York City.  Unfortunately, I won't be attending this year.  I thought I might be able to, but it's not going to happen.  I say that every year, so next year I'm going to try to plan ahead and see if I can make it to the banquet.
