K-a-r-i-n With An Eye 11x14 oil

I say Karin with an eye for two reasons. One is a play on words because her name has an "i" instead of an "e". The second is she is a fabulous artist with a wonderful eye for capturing people in oil. Her name is Karin Jurick and she is and has been very generous with her time. She started the blog "Different Strokes From Different Folks". She has created wonderful challenges for artist to challenge themselves and a blog to post them on to see how everyone has a different eye when it comes to interpretation of a photo.
This painting of mine is one of 118 portraits done of Karin and put in a book as a thank you. Artist and participant in the dsfdf challenges, Jill Polsby, thought of it and followed it through. She sent it off to Karin last week and surprized her. So now we all can post our rendition of Karin Jurick.

This was a tough challange and you pulled it of beautifully! My favorite part is Karin's eyes, something I had a hard time with. Love the warm tonal effect...very nice!

You did a really nice rendition, Dori! I also love the way Bob's portrait is coming along -- very nice. And I'm probably flattering myself but I think we're sharing a palette/color sensibility lately. Yes, I think that's flattering myself but I do love your colors.
