Karin Jurick portrait



Karin had a portrait exchange on her blog for December. 180 people swapped photos and did each others portraits, then exchanged the finished portraits with each other.
One of the artists, Jill Pollsby decided to thank Karin for all her efforts by organizing a portrait painting of Karin. 118 of us painted her from the same photo and Jill put all the portraits together in a book and sent it to Karin. It was a total surprise for Karin so we all had to keep it a secret for almost 2 months. You can see Karin's reaction on her blog
and you can see all 118 portraits here

Diane, Have been following your work for some time. Admire all that you produce. This portrait of Karen is so compelling. I like the finished piece you've produced from the freedom of the flair in the hair, the warm varied clear colors, the true shapes of the facial features. It looks as though Karin is just about to say something with sparkling crisp humor(it's probably a lot bdcause of the sparkle in her eyes.). Excellent. Great job. Ruth
