Portrait Challenge

This is a portrait of an artist I do not know. The challenge was from artist Karin Jurick from her blog Different Strokes from Different Folks. 130 artists participated, we were given photos to paint from and this artist was to paint my portrait. What a fun challenge, never meeting someone and then trying to capture their personality by painting them. Whew, I hope she likes the finished piece.
