Painting Us Different Folks

6 x 6"
oil on masonite
gift to the artist

I've got this interesting project that just got started ~ on my Different Strokes From Different Folks blog ~ 130 artists, including myself, will be painting portraits of each other. All from photographs they've submitted to me. I put all 130 names in a hat, randomly drew a name for each artist - presumably someone they've never met - and they are to paint that artist and that artist is to paint them. This handsome man is my victim.

My blog got a nice mention in the January issue of Southwest Art magazine as well. I'm very proud.

I bet he is feeling like he hit the lotto of a painting drawing.

Very nice piece in your unique style.

Another awesome painting, Karin! Sorry I missed the fun because portraits are my favorite subject. Hope you and your boyfriend have a wonderful Christmas!

Congratulations on your Making a Mark best portrait nomination. It would be hard to choose a favorite, but I love the chosen painting.

Karin, this painting is a masterpiece. Louvre-worthy.

Just stopping by to add my words of admiration about your work in general and this piece in particular. I am going to be in the south of the U.S. this spring and look forward to going to visit your paintings in person at your galleries. As much as I enjoy them here and on your website, there is nothing like an up-close, personal visit!
