100 OIL PORTRAITS IN 100 DAYS - Karin, 46/100, © Carol Nelson Fine Art



Day 46

You might say this whole project of painting 100 portraits in 100 days started because of this lady. This is Karin Jurick, an incredible artist whose work I accidentally discovered on the internet a couple years ago. The first time I came across her website, I was transfixed for about two hours. She can paint anything, but her figurative work especially blows me away. If you haven't visited her site, grab a cup of coffee, get comfortable, and be prepared to feast your eyes.

One of her many projects is her blog, Different Strokes from Different Folks, for which she posts a photo and invites any artist to paint it. Then she posts the paintings on this blog. The last project of the DSFDF blog was for artist participants to paint each other - thus started the portrait binge I've been on.

Every morning I start my day by looking at your blog and the news masterpiece. How fun to see Karin looking back at me!
I took part in Jill's 'Thank you'-project and painted Karin's portrait (as did 117 other artists). It's just great to see the different renditions everyone came up with.
AND: you're almost at the halftime mark now! Bravo!

I could pick out a few of the Spanish words in Jose's comment - sangre, mano, corazon, bello blog, etc
Jose is such a poet.
Muchas gracias, Jose.
