"Unknown Artist"


This lovely lady is an artist that I do not know. I painted her portrait as part of Karin Jurick's challenge blog   Different Strokes From Different Folks year end portrait challenge.
I had fun with this portrait this artist is very attractive.Her red hair, beautiful smile and those eyes.
I hope she finds my portrait equally enjoyable.
I don't know who this is, but I hope she likes it, and I can't wait to she what she does with mine.

Wonderful job with the portrait challenge, Irit, and as Gwen stated, it has your signature look.
Desiree's portrait of you is beautiful!

Hi there, thank you for painting my portrait, I think you did a great job. I hope you like the way I painted yours, it is done with pastels. I will enjoy seeing the rest of the paintings post.

Irit, you did a superb job for your portrait challenge...the colors and spirit are vibrant. And Desiree's portrait of you is also very nice. I must add that her portrait of you is so-o-o-o much more attractive than your shadow on the wall :-) Stop by my blog for a mug of egg nog. Happy Holidays!
