One of the 119 faces of Karin Jurick


This is my contribution to the Thank You project orchestrated by Jill Polsby who wanted Karin Jurick to know how much the artists who have participated in her "Different Strokes by Different Folks" challenge appreciate her efforts and inspiration.
If it wasn't for Karin, I wouldn't have attempted a portrait of a human (horses, dogs and cats are familiar territory to me!). I did one for her End of the Year challenge when our photo was swapped with another artist and we painted each other. In fact, I painted lots of stuff that wouldn't have occurred to me to paint.
Thanks to Karin and Jill.

This is such a gorgeous portrait, Catherine. Having the benefit of seeing the photo, I know this is spot on!
