At the 2013 Portrait Society of America convention, Judith took the easel to paint a portrait of James Gurney (author and illustrator of Dinotopia)

Blogger and portrait artist Matthew D. Innis wrote"Carducci ... had the audience roaring with laughter." James Gurney blogged "She charmed the audience with limericks and solid painting advice as she worked. It was fun to be on the other side of the easel. Thanks, Judy! "
