Certificate of Excellence from The Portrait Society of America
Apr 17, 2017
I'm very happy to announce that the recent portrait I painted of my nephew has received a Certificate of Excellence from the Portrait Society of America! I know their standards are very high and I'm really pleased they selected my work, this is a good day!
This is the portrait that has been selected. It is a portrait of my nephew Thijs. It is 12 x 12 inch (30 x 30 cm), painted with oil on linen. The jury remarked that it was painted with exceptional skill and found it a bold statement. I like to stay off the beaten track and try to create art that is different and it feels great to be recognized by my peers and artist that I have admired for a long time.
