Trip to Washington DC

The Lady with the Red hat  Johannes Vermeer
National gallery Washington DC

Welcome and thank you for visiting ! I must start with my amazing trip recently to Washington D.C. USA. I attended The Portrait Society of America conference where I had the pleasure to become extremely inspired and educated by some of the foremost leading contemporary artists in the portrait arena. I also had the distinct pleasure of visiting The National Gallery and The National Portrait Gallery, both part of the comprehensive Smithsonian Institute. A smaller gallery, The Phillips Collection also did not escape my attendance.


  1. Great to hear that you had a wonderful trip to Washington. The picture that you've enclosed is wonderful. Da Vinci captured the curls beautifully. Are curls going to be the next defining feature in one of your future paintings?

  2. I'm late in coming, but I'm new to blogging...excellent page btw. I look forward to visiting this page often.
