Recent International Portrait Competition

On a whim, I recently entered one of my private gallery portraits (Pensive Holly, shown below) into an international portrait competition in the United Kingdom.  To my surprise, I was awarded 2nd place.  Not bad for an aging, mostly self-taught dabbler.  The results as published in Picturedraw (United Kingdom) are set forth below.
