  1. Carol! So glad you surfaced...you did a good job on me. Wish I had taken a bit more time with the source photo so you'd have had a better chance. BUT, I was almost losing the deadline...in the middle of moving, and just did a quickie!

    Your photo was great to work from, the light great...and the red sweater and green tree made for great contrast!

    Welcome to blogging. I LUV it!

  2. Carol I raved about this portrait in the DSDF blog. I love this piece, and your background is shining through it. I can tell you've had a rich career and I'm so glad you're still creating and now you have a blog! I will be a regular visitor - Erika

  15. Hi Carol- I really like the pairing of you and Vicki on this portrait challenge- outstanding! It has been wonderful discovering so many other "Design Birds" through the blog-sphere. Regarding using larger brushes...I would say, you know what you're doing :>) Stay warm & happy painting to you!

  16. Elegantly done. It would be fun to see more of your work ..even of the "olden days" of your graphic work? More posts on your blog. More dog portraits ? With the boots is esp great.
