Jaime's Lemons, oil 6x9, for The Portrait Society of America's Mystery Sale, Friday May 1, 2015

One of the wildest and most fun highlights of the Portrait Society of America's Annual Art of the Portrait Event is the 6x9 Mystery Sale - more than 200 small panels, unsigned on the front, are donated by the PSA Faculty and invited artists, where all are both unveiled and sold in a matter of 30 very, very short minutes. Only after the panels are purchased (each at a fixed price of $250) is the buyer allowed to take the panel, turn it over and find the name of the artist who painted the panel. So much fun!

Here is the panel I donated,  fresh lemons painted from life, picked from my niece and nephew's yard.
