Portrait Swap


Artist Suzy Charto

This is my entry for the latest challenge from Karin Jurick's blog, Different Strokes from Different Folks. This mystery artist will also paint a portrait of me from a photo that I submitted. I remember looking at all of the amazing portraits that were painted last year and knowing that I would want to participate should Karin do it again. What fun this was and I can't wait to find out who my mystery artist is.

UPDATE 12-29-09 Suzy Charto is my mystery artist! Here is the link to the painting she did from my photo. Her blog is so fun to read.

Oh, and this is really cool. Karin is making videos of all of the portraits and posting them on You Tube. There are 4 parts to the series. Check them out!

I am finally getting around to commenting on the portraits I thought were the very best, and wow is yours one of them. I was drawn to yours the moment I saw it, and it took a minute to realize it was done with a knife. I don't know how you do it, but I love it!
