Thanks to Karin Jurick

Karin Jurick is the artist has run the Different Strokes from Different Folks challenges for over a year. As a thank you, Jill Polsby organized a painting book/gift of a portrait of Karin done by well over 100 artists. I was happy to participate and really want to thank both Karin and Jill for their time.
Pastels, 11x14 is what I chose to do mine in. Yes, I know! I will be toning down my signature so it doesn't scream in the image. See what happens when we hurry.
Check out this page to see the other paintings.   http://picasaweb.google.com/polsby/The118FacesOfKarinJurickJanuary2010?authkey=Gv1sRgCLCMzN6K7LOCGg

This is so beautiful, Maria! One of my favorites in the project. The way you handled the light keeps me looking at the portrait - especially the reflected light under her chin. Great interpretation!

Congratulations Maria for all that has more light, bright

Karin Jurick deserve.
I have not forgotten the promise, but lack of time any more.
Forgive me this delay.
