100 OIL PORTRAITS IN 100 DAYS - Judy, 55/100, © Carol Nelson Fine Art

Day 55

This is Judy, who sent me a very nicely lit reference photo taken indoors with strong side lighting on her face. I was able to vary the colors on her face from a very pale yellow to a deep violet. For purchase information on this portrait, please see my website, or email carolnelsonfineart@comcast.net.

Update on Morris and Mark: both patients are doing better today than yesterday and we expect their improvement will continue with each passing day. For those of you who know about kidney function tests, Morris' creatinine level went from 6.4 before surgery, to 5.6 in recovery room, to 4.1 in just 24 hours which proves his new kidney is working. I am utterly amazed at this rapid improvement in blood levels of creatinine.
Again, thank you all for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers.

I was recently interviewed by Chassily Wakefield for 1st TUNING POINT, a promotional site for authors and writers. You can read the interview by clicking on this link. I was asked for my views on art marketing, my background, my philosophy of painting, influences on my art career, and opinions on a variety of topics.

Hi Carol, all these portraits are just amazing. I clicked and enlarged each one and that is when you can really appreciate them. Keep it up, I am looking forward to the next bunch!

Wonderful portrait. So grateful your husband is recovering and already reaping the benefits from his transplant. Take care, Carol.

Dang, I must be the last one to find out about your husband's surgery (you must've mentioned somewhere else first other than your blog?).

I'm sending positive vibes your way!!

Oh, and I love the extreme colors in this one. My favorite portraits from you are the ones with the bold colors.
