There is an online painting group called "Different Strokes From Different Folks". Every month there is a photo submitted and posted on line. Painters from all over the country interpret and paint from that photo. Then all the work is posted on line. For the month of December, we were asked to submit a head shot photo of ourselves. Our photos were sent to other participating artists (who we didn't know) all over the country and they painted from that photo. So this lovely gal I just painted is another artist (I don't know) who may be painting my portrait. I have posted the photo of her below so that you know what she really looks like!!
Unknown artist photo UPDATE: The artist is now known! Meet Kris Wood. I feel like I know her quite well after studying her face for hours while painting her. She's a fellow artist, art teacher and Sooner fan (which I will not hold against her). We have agreed to trade our finished portraits with each other. This turned out to be way more fun than I could ever have imagined.
