DSFDF Portrait Challenge

Submitted this to the DSFDF just under the deadline wire. I wasn't able to participate in the portrait challenge last year, so I was really pleased to be able to this year. Looks like there were 180 artists to participate this year!! Check it out:Different Strokes From Different Folks hosted by artist Karin Jurick.

New Year's resolution: to double the number of blog paintings in 2010!

All the best in 2010!

Beautifully painted - a nice painterly look, and I love the orange underpainting peeking through the blues. This is wonderful!

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
