I recently likened my self to eggplant and broccoli for my vegetable alter ego options.  The emails have been greatly entertaining, and in one case, very flattering.  One of you out there thinks I am foie gras…and you weren’t even trying to get me to pick you as this month’s Featured Artist.  Flattery and food are perfectly good reasons to write this blog every day; I promise.  This next Call wants to see your definition of a portrait.  Eggplant and brussel sprouts are now officially up for grabs…

Check out this Call for Entries from Gallery 263 (Cambridge, MA)  for the Portrait Show.  the entry fee is cheap, and there is no commission.  Don’t miss this opportunity…
