Your brushstrokes are so precise! Love the small size and dark background. It really makes his features pop!

What a great start to an inspired challenge. Be curious to see if any of the 'mug-ees' will recognize themselves.

Karin,
Love the mugshots! What a cool idea.
I have a random unrelated question - how do you phtograph the people in museums for your paintings? Every museum in NM says no cameras. Is is incognito? Do you get permission?
Thanks,
Dee

Just fantastic, Karin! This would be a great "different strokes" challenge. I just love the idea, would love to try it. where do you get the mug shots?

Karin Jurick said...

They're all over the world wide web Tonya.

Dee, I only use my camera in places that allow it.

Dee Sanchez said...

Karin,
Okay, thanks. I thought about popping mine out but it just felt too weird!
