On Saturday they had an awards ceremony as well as a portrait demo by Gregg Kreutz.
Gregg completed this painting in 1 hour and 15 minutes! I was sitting there and I couldn't believe it. I'm working on a portrait now and I'm about eight hours in and still need one more session. I'm so glad I was able to see this because it really helped me with the painting I'm working on now.
After the demo and a musical performance, it was time for the awards ceremony. I was lucky enough to win the Colonel George J. Morales Memorial Award, so it was a very exciting afternoon for me.
Sorry this photo is so dark. I didn't have a chance to ask anyone to take a photo at the ceremony, so this was taken after while out celebrating.
It was a great afternoon. Thanks to everyone at The American Artist Professional League.
Update: I just realized I forgot to show you my painting! Here it is.
