Kelley's Mug

4 x 4

I didn't think I'd get any painting in this week, but everyone was out of the house for awhile tonight, so instead of tackling the many little Christmas related things that need to get done, like wrapping and looking over the list for the gazillionth time, I finished another Hilton Head Gang member's mug shot.  This week is artist Kelley MacDonald,  and borrowing Kelley's mantra, sometimes "girls just wanna paint".  Visit Kelley's blog here.

Thanks to all who visited my blog and for the kind comments offered in response to the postings this year.  I appreciate all your support.  May you all have a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year and everyone be safe out there!


  1. Kelley looks wonderful! The skin tones are great and I love the way you painted Kelley's lips. Have a Great Christmas and very happy new year also!

  2. Thank you so much Maria and for all your work organizing this project. Blessings to you and yours as well!

  3. She is wonderful! Love her eyes and lips. You did a great job.
    Happy Holidays!

  4. Terri, that is such a beautiful portrait of Kelley! I love the background color and how the face 'emerges' from it!
    Wish you and yours Happy Holidays and all the best for the New Year

  5. I recognized Kelley immediately...wonderful job!

  6. Terri, all I can say is... YOU ROCK! Thanks! Well done!
