Portrait Gets Two Awards!
Sandy Bonney's pastel portrait of Albert Handell (one of the world's top pastel artists) won first place at the Pasadena Materials and Supplies Expo: Art! show in October. The portrait was also juried into the Pastel 100 Competition sponsored by the Pastel Journal Magazine. Over 4,500 entries were received from all over the world. Only 100 are selected, twenty from each of five categories. Albert was one of the those selected for the Figures and Portraits category and won an Honorable Mention. This piece will be in the April 2011 issue of the Pastel Journal Magazine.
