Artist of the Month, Angela Bentley Fife

Today we happily announce our May Artist of the Month, Angela Bentley Fife, who was a 2009 finalist in the Portrait category of our 26th Annual Art Competition.

Constant Comparison (oil, 24×36)

Fife shared the following with us about her entry: “The black and white dress she is wearing is from my imagination. I often change the clothing or come up with my own pattern. It makes it more interesting to me and I can feel myself trying to figure out the lighting or how a pattern would turn with the fabric. It is also interesting to try to make up how a certain soft fabric or stiff fabric would react to the way
I have posed the model.”

You can read more about Angela Bentley Fife’s painting practices here, in our Artist of the Month article.
