100 OIL PORTRAITS IN 100 DAYS - Vern, 83/100, © Carol Nelson Fine Art



Day 84

Vern Schwarz is a fine artist I met on the Different Strokes from Different Folks blog. He looks so serious in this photo I was tempted to put a flower behind his ear or something. To visit Vern's blog, click here.

=============================================

Voting was very tight this time, but we have a winner by one vote: SAUNDRA, 75/100. Saundra is normally an exuberant person, and this ought to send her over the top! LOL

Saundra Lane Galloway said...

WOW, YOU ARE RIGHT about going over the top...I JUST DID THE HAPPY DANCE!! WOOO HOOO! Thanks all...!

Vern Schwarz said...

And this is my lighter side Carol...art can be such a serious business...ha! A flower may have improved that weighty look, but I think you did a wonderful job with the little you had to work with. This whole project of yours has been fabulous, and fun to witness as it unfolds. Thanks so much for including me.

Hey Carol, I met Vern at a workshop about a year ago (what a great guy!), and you really did capture his likeness in this portrait. Great job!

It's great to see a picture of Vern!I love your rendering, which is a treat to see up close on the larger version. All the subtle colors come together just right.
