This is a portrait of an artist that I have never met. We participated in a portrait swap. The site is a must see. It is called Different Strokes for Different Folkes and is hosted by Karin Jurick an amazing artist. It was really fun to participate in all the weekly challenges the past few months. This end of the year challege was a surprise and I enjoyed it a lot. I was especially surprised to find my portrait done as fast as I had completed mine. The portraits are due by January 7th. I had fun painting my given artist and hope he likes his portrait. I love mine!
