Art Renewal Center 2013 Finalist

For my first post of 2014 I promise to be a more active blogger. Not just on this blog but also on my illustration blog- which you should be following. Last year for what ever reason I had the least amount of posts in a year since I started Verisimilitude. Even this post about me being a ARC finalist is kind old news. I have been told blogs are done- pass'e- they are are "so 2009". Twitter is apparently not the hip new thing anymore either. Not sure what the newest online social media trend is now- maybe a site where you just post a guttural noise that expresses your feelings. Actually, that's a pretty good idea. Anyone want in invest in my new website- Gruntbook?

In a few days is the deadline for the next Art Renewal Center 2014 International Salon. I was very excited to be chosen for the second year in a row as a finalist. Last year I entered the first painting of a 3 part commission I am working on for the Demolay Internation organization, in the Imaginative Realism category. I got my big glossy catalog in the mail the other day. It is an honor to see my work featured alongside so many great painters.

Here I am casually admiring the catalog on my fancy new desk (the desk will get a blog post of it's own soon), drinking my morning cappuccino (I know it is uncool to drink cappuccinos before 2 p.m., but that is how I roll).
Here is a link to high res version of the painting on the ARC website.  CLICK ME!
