Semifinalist in the Outwin Boochiever 2016 Competition, Natl. Portrait Gallery

Several months ago I found out that my painting "Daniel Jabari" was selected as a Semifinalist (top 100) in the National Portrait Gallery's Outwin Boochiever Portrait Competition. The names of the Finalists were announced last week and I'm sorry to report that my painting didn't make the final cut and won't be in the upcoming exhibition.

Best wishes to all the artists who submitted paintings to this competition and of course big congratulations to all the Finalists (which include artists from a variety of media, paintings, photography, sculpture, video, etc.) who will show their work when the exhibit opens next year in Washington, DC! I'm sure the opening will be an exciting event. It's a fantastic achievement to be able to have your work seen in person by so many eyes - and the show will travel, also.

Here's my painting and thanks to all the people who have told me they like it, I really appreciate your support.
