100 PORTRAITS IN 100 DAYS - Pattie, 10/100, © Carol Nelson Fine Art

Isn't this one a hoot?!?! I just love it. Pattie did all the work with the wild color and the great camera angle in her reference photo - all I had to do was paint it. OK, I might have pushed the color just a little.
For purchase information, please see my website.

This completes the first 10 - TIME FOR YOU TO BE THE JUDGE. You are the juror of this art show, and you have to award first place to one of these portraits. Your criteria can be anything you feel is important about the painting. Lord knows, there is no figuring out what art show judges are thinking half the time.

Scroll down the blog and decide which of the ten you think is the best, then email me your choice - name and the number (note: there are two Suzannes: 1/100 and 8/100).

Please put VOTE in the subject.

I will reveal the winner in 4 or 5 days. Happy voting!

Your doing such a great job on this challenging task. I was thinking about taking on a 24 hr painting session myself.

Wow Carol!

This one is just stunning!

Intense, raw, and bold!

You captured her attitude brilliantly. Don't mess with Pattie!! LOL

The orange-reds on her face are awesome and just pop against the all white background!

This has got to be one of my favorites so far!
