Portrait of Karin


oil on masonite
8x10
This was a part of a collective project by followers of Karin Jurick's blog, Different Strokes From Different Folks, as a way to thank her for the time and effort she invests to allow exposure and development of artists. We are surprising her with her portrait, make that 118 portraits. Thanks again Karin! Hope you know how much you've been appreciated.
And thanks to Jill Polsby who put the project together. If you visit Karin's or Jill's websites, you can see all the different renditions of this remarkable person and wonderful artist.

  3. Your portrait of Karin is fantastic, Terri! I love the play of warm and cool colors in the flesh tones and beautiful soft glow on Karin's face. I'm am sure she will be very pleased with your portrait of her.

  8. Hi Terri, I think you did a fantasic job on Karin's portrait. I didn't know about the "scheme" so missed out on this fun idea. I like your use of color and light.
    Folks may want to check out "Studio Atelier" hosted by Barb Benik, for more painting challenges.
    (from your last months painting buddy.)
