Portrait of Karin Jurick
10 x 8 oil on canvas
Via her blog DSFDF Karin Jurick has brought together a family of artist bloggers who participate in ongoing challenges throughout the year. The year end challenge is a portrait swap with Karin pairing participants at random to paint each other's portraits. This is a huge undertaking involving many hours of her time. As a way to let Karin know how much she and these blog challenges mean to us, fellow artist and blogger, Jill Polsby, coordinated a project whereby each of us would paint Karin from the same photograph. She then had a book printed which has just been presented to Karin as a token of our gratitude. Here is a photo page with the 118 paintings contained in the book.
Everyone must have used their best brushes because the portraits are awesome with many interpretations of Karin's lovely face! Thank you Karin!
Jill, this was such a great idea! Congratulations and thank you! The book is wonderful!
