I’m very honored to be one of fourteen recipients of @the_portrait_society Signature Status for 2018. This honorary designation recognizes practicing and accomplished artists who are dedicated to the educational mission and high aesthetic standards of the Portrait Society of America. As an artist I feel like I grew up in the PSOA. I’m grateful they have acknowledged my contributions thus far and look forward to serving as a faculty member at the annual conference in D.C. this coming April! #portraitsocietyofamerica#portraitpainting#portraitartist#figurativeartist#annarosebain
I think it was about 3 years ago when I felt this incredible urge to explore figurative work. To be honest, I could barely draw a stick figure. I followed the call anyway and still feel super excited to continue exploring... wherever that ends up taking me. Have been MIA from the studio, but I hope to be back soon! #figurestudy
One of my hand drawings will be part of Dacia Gallery’s “Works on Paper" group exhibition! I’m excited to be showing with so many great artists! Opens Thursday Dec. 14th in NYC from 6-9pm.
It’s fun to see your work sorted as the nine best of 2017. I love the color blue, mermaids, was ahead of the trend for the movie “Lady Bird,” and see all kinds of possibilities with mistletoe 💫 #2017bestnine
