Edward Burton's Portrait of Me


Speaking of portraits, my current New Year's challenge on my Different Strokes From Different Folks blog involves 130 different artists painting each others' portrait - and a very talented artist, Edward Burton, was selected to paint me. It is beautifully done - thank you Edward.

And thank you to Katherine Tyrell, for the honor of giving my blog The Best Art Blog Project of 2008 Virtual Challenge Cup Award. I'm a huge fan of her Making a Mark blog - I read it religiously.

VERY NICE...
I know Edward was under a lot of pressure from his fans... Looks like he pulled it off!
Great job.

Karin, I am once again honored by your by having my portrait of you as a posting on your blog. Thank you very much for your praise and the link to my blog.

Thanks for the mention Karin.

Your Different Strokes From Different Folks project/blog has given a new spin to the traditional idea of groups painting from the same photo. Coupled with your tutorials and the emphasis on raising standards of presentation and making choices from the info provided this makes it a a genuine original in my eyes.

It very much deserved the award despite being so relatively new. Original is what we like! :)

Very nice painting Edward!

I'm imagining this painting will be a popular conversational piece in your home Karin. You both did each other justice! What a wonderful concept this whole challenge was! Maybe it can be an annual event :)
