Guess Karin Jurick's recent on line challenge still has me in "portrait mode". This is painted from a photo of my granddaughter, Caroline.

Self Portrait

9 x 12
oil on hardboard

Since Karin Jurick's recent portrait challenge, many of the artists were doing self portraits. I realized that I had never done one myself, so why not start this year out with that challenge. One thing for sure, it's given me a whole new respect for portrait painters. This was painted from the entry photo I sent to Karin.
