Portrait challenge of Karin Jurick



















I was asked if I wanted to participate in the
"Thank You" project to Karen Jurick who does the
Different Strokes from Different Folks to thank
her for all the work she put in to make this
blog work. 118 artists worked from the same
reference photo of Karen Jurick which are now
printed in a book and mailed off to Karen.
Jill Polsby organized the project and
worked on getting all the paintings put
together. All 118 paintings are on Jill's blog.

Fernando and Srishti....Thanks for the comments. The reference photo was hard to work from, so I had to use it off my monitor. As I painted this portrait of Karen, I thought she had a nose like someone else I know and subconsciously painted the eyes of the other gal.

What a fantastic portrait and a wonderful thing to do. I couldn't think of a more lovely way to show her how much her kindness and hard work has been valued & appreciated...
