2017 Rose Festival Queen official portrait


It was an honor to paint the official portrait of the 2017 Rose Festival Queen, Michaela Canete. The portrait was unveiled at the Oregon Society of Artists, where it will be on display for the month of June. It then will join four other portraits of previous Rose Festival queens at the Rose Festival Building on SW Naito Parkway in Portland. Thank you to the Oregon Society of Artists, the Portland Rose Festival, and to Michaela Canete for being such a wonderful model!  KPTV Fox 12 news was there to capture the unveiling, and filmed this short video! http://www.kptv.com/…/36th-annual-rose-festival-art-show-op… Photos of Michaela’s reaction to the portrait courtesy of Liana Kramer.

    Your portraits are so life like. You amaze me with your work. I totally enjoy each piece. Wish I could have each and every one hanging in my home.
