I am so incredibly honored to learn that my painting “Katie Nell Pinkard” has received 2nd Place in the Still Life Category for the Portrait Society of America’s Members Only Competition.
My great aunt, Katie Nell Pinkard passed away at age 103 on June 12, 2012. Her recipes, or lack there of, in my family are legendary, especially for her fried apple pies. There’s a lot more to the story, but to keep this post less than a book, I was unable to fly down and attend her funeral, so I spent the whole day/ weekend baking all my favorites of hers. Then I set up a still life and photographed it.The fan was hers and always in her kitchen. I love the noise it makes. Most of the items in the paintings were hers. The violets are because she had a knack for growing beautiful african violets, so I got these little guys in 2012 and now they are all flourishing and huge!!
To see more photos and videos of the making of this still life, visit my Facebook page.

Women Painting Women started in 2009 as a blog by 3 amazing artists, Alia El-Bermani, Diane Feissel and Sadie Valeri. It has since become somewhat of a movement unto itself in the contemporary figurative art world, and I am so honored to be included in this year’s exhibition. The talent of the other artists is overwhelming and I can’t wait to meet them all and see their beautiful work in person! So if you find yourself in the Charleston area, come join the revolution!
Opening Reception is Friday September 5th from 6-8pm Principle Gallery – 125 Meeting Street, Charleston, SC 29401
I am honored to announce that I was chosen to receive a scholarship to attend the annual conference of the Portrait Society of America this coming April. I am super excited to be surrounded by and learn from so many talented artists, many of whose work I’ve followed for years! Look for a full report here in May.
