"DORI" daily painter original oil portrait © Carol Nelson Fine Art

"DORI"

This portrait is of artist Dori Dewberry.
Dori's photo was one of the ones I selected to be part of my 100 PORTRAITS project about a year ago.  Recently, I answered a call for entries by submitting this portrait to be in Randy Higbee Gallery's 6x6 INCH SQUARED competition.

I'm happy to say that this painting of Dori was chosen to be in the group of selected paintings from 1200 entries by artists around the country. 

The exhibition will be at Randy Higbee Gallery in Costa Mesa, CA.
Dori lives in Orange County in Southern California, so she will be able to see her own portrait in the show.  That is cool.

Dori beat out other entries I made of my granddaughter and husband!!
