Our first WINNER! 4 more portraits to win...easy to enter.

Congratulations to KEDAR CLARKE who is our FIRST Winner in our Portrait Contest with The Celebrity Artist, Jamaal Rolle!

Kedar, of Nassau, Bahamas submitted the following photograph of his deceased friend and wrote, "Pictures capture memories that you hope will last a lifetime. On August 1st 2011, I lost my best friend, brother and confidant; this shook my entire world. Garvin was the most lively, d ependable and encouraging person I knew. Calling him a friend is an understatement because he became and remained my hero. Over the years I've received tons of compliments for my work, my strength and my focus on achieving my goals. It was during those years of the greatest challenges in my life that Garvin became my biggest support system and the sole person that I sought for counsel, aside from God.

Despite his physical absence, the lessons and love he shared still lingers with me and those memories can never be removed from my heart. The gift of this portrait isn't for me, but rather his loving mother Anna, as a visual reminder of the exceptional soul she once bore."

"Our selection team felt this was such a loving and touching story, that we had to select him," said Robbin Whachell, Editor, TheBahamasWeekly.com. The Celebrity Artist will now take the photograph of Garvin and draw a life-like
black and white portrait sketch valued at $1000.

Upon word of his win Kedar responded with what inspired him to enter the contest, "
As soon as I saw the ad for a photo by Jammal Rolle, I was so excited and anxious to have a chance to have him sketch my photo! I read the information and it was just around the time of my best friend's birthday and the words "memories" stuck out to me. I knew then that the photo wasn't gonna be of me, or for me.  Just as Garvin gave so selflessly in life, I wanted to give this 'memory' to his beloved mother. I'm so happy my entry was chosen. THANKS BAHAMAS WEEKLY!"
