Thank-You Karin Jurick Project

Now a little twist to the Different Strokes From Different Folks blog.  Many of Karin's followers wanted to send her a thank-you for all of the work she has done with DSFDF.  Jill Polsby headed up this project and connected with the artists who participated in the end-of-year portrait challenge at Different Strokes From Different Folks.  Well, 118 of us responded and painted our own version of a potrait of Karin, based on a photo that Jill provided to us.  Shown below is my version of Karin:

 
Portrait of Karin
Oil
11" x 14"

I loved painting this portrait.  I see more I would like to do on it, but it is easy to overwork a portrait.  I am satisfied with the end result, and if I want to make any changes, I'll start a new painting.
