Paintings of every little thing, and all the important big things as well. My view. My inspiration.....

At the end of the year Karin Jurick's Different Strokes Challenge is to paint another painter! You submit your photo and she sends you another painter's photo - this was my assignment and my finished piece.

Oh, you guys make me feel sooo good! Thank you.ReplyDelete
great portrait and I like the fact that it is monochrome.ReplyDelete
cool Kelley! I like how you captured the light in this one.ReplyDelete
Did someone paint you?
This is great!!
Really well done, and the sepia just fits.ReplyDelete
wow, I think you did a great job here. I'd better get crackin'!ReplyDelete
You should do more portraits--really good!ReplyDelete
Kelley, So fabulous! Everything you do, you do well! I am so impressed! That is a beautiful portrait! I love the monochromatic color palette! Great job!ReplyDelete
I kept wondering where are Kelly's emails (she must be on a journey, or busy painting for a show...) and so I found you, scrolled down to see all the paintings I missed, and saw that you were dropped by goggle. So I'll sign up again. I missed you.ReplyDelete
Hi Kelley. I REALLY LIKE your painting of me, very much! I "blundered" into your blog & there I am/was/be! Dang, what a shock to see myself! Thank you for such a good job! I hope you're happy with my painting of you.ReplyDelete
By the way my youngest daughter's name is Kelly. And she has just sent me an email as I'm writing this! I'm going to go to bed now. Toooooo weird!

PS - Kelley, your painting of me is one of the best Christmas presents that I'll receive this year. Thanks again!.ReplyDelete
I love the portrait! So artistically captured and the likeness is dead on!ReplyDelete
You really aced the likeness! Love that monochromatic style. Your values are awesome!ReplyDelete
Great Stuff Kelley. After a few weeks of daily paintings I thought I would do a self portrait.ReplyDelete
Its a lot harder than apples, especially trying to keep it simple.
Anyway this is a great effort!
Excellent, Kelley!! Great painting of Ken.ReplyDelete
Hope you have a Merry Christmas & joyous 2010.
best to you,
Outstanding portrait! I really like your side by side presentation! You captured him well!ReplyDelete
Hi Kelley - thank you for stopping by my blog. I am going thru your posts now and enjoying your writing style on each piece. I find it interesting to learn how each artist comes to each piece.ReplyDelete
This is so powerful, and one of my favorites of the portrait challenge. Really, really good!ReplyDelete
Kelley, this painting is wonderful...so loose and tells the story perfectlyReplyDelete
Great job with the portrait, Kelley!ReplyDelete
You really captured the likeness! Great portrait painting!ReplyDelete
One of the best out there, Kelley! Happy New Year!ReplyDelete
This is one of my favorites. Excellent job!ReplyDelete
Auggghhh! You guys are so KIND! This painting just flew off the brush - I had a WTF attitude about doing it - I was ON MY WAY TO BED, in pj's! Maybe I should paint in that *mode* more often!ReplyDelete
Kelley, this portrait is awesome!BravoReplyDelete
Kelley, I know I already told you on Facebook that I love this but I'm here to say it officially on your blog. You have pulled off a painterly rendering of this guy and yet you really got his look (and man, that nose is perfect! Noses are hard for me). Great job, girl!ReplyDelete
Great job - I would have been scared to do this, worried about what kind of photo I was getting, one without a dramatic light source? Hard to read values - argh!!! - BUT I just looked at all 180 entries on KJ's site and they are all so fun to look at - every single one of them - !ReplyDelete
Great likeness, I'll have to check out the rest of the portraits.ReplyDelete
You did a great job on this portrait, Kelley. He will love it.ReplyDelete
Kelley, this is one of the very best portraits, I loved it as soon as I saw it and should have commented then. Wonderful!ReplyDelete
Good luck with your workshop!!!
