Caffeine



I woke up this morning in the mood to paint a portrait. I found this photo on flickr of a lovely woman with the most interesting, beautiful face. Here is a link to her photo http://www.flickr.com/photos/43071680@N00/956716206/in/set-72157594476119979/. KarenMarleneLarsen. Her photos are fabulous. I just finished this so it is wet. 8x10 oil on pintura board. ps. I added the original photo for you to compare.

Nancy - I'm getting a big kick from the subjects you choose. Just can't wait to see what's next and the way you handle them is just great. And I'm ready for you to post the painting of you by Kim English. I also enjoyed your take on the workshops. Thanks for adding to my day.

I'm a devotee of Karen's flickr images and narratives...and this painting of her is just plain perfect!
