Angel Academy alumna Christina Mastrangelo has been working on a large-scale triptych, and one of the panels won a place in the Portrait Society of America’s Members’ Only competition. Out of over 800 entries, the painting received 9th place out of 30 winners. The full triptych mock-up can be seen on Christina’s blog: http://mastrangelo-art-blogger.tumblr.com/
Among other things on her blog, Christina has a marvelous How to Navigate your Early Career section.
The Oil Painters of America bestowed on Christina an honorable mention for her still life America’s Cup in their online showcase this summer. The Salmagundi Club is hosting their annual holiday Thumb Box juried show, and Christina has three pieces on display there for sale. Her painting From the Base of Mount Washington was honoured with the JoAnne Leiser Memorial Award this year.
She has just finished a remarkable painting, Behold, Your Heart, oil and gold leaf on linen over panel, inspired by Beatrice in Dante’s La Vita Nuova.
Congratulations, too, to Christina on her recent marriage!!!
