As often happens when winter comes and I taper off gigging my focus turns to art. LuAnn Dunkinson turned me onto Karin Jurick. Karin's an amazing painter and also runs a neat little thing called Different Strokes From Different Folks where she posts challenges for her fellow artists and then displays the results. Cool hunh? So I joined the recent portrait challenge. 130 artists paired up so you painted the artist who was painting you.
Here's my guy, Jerry Points:
and my painting of him:
We had three weeks and I spent about two hours on it LOL I think it shows but I'm still pretty happy with it. It's been a long long time since I did any painting at all so I'm really looking forward to doing more of these challenges! Fun!
My picture and Jerry's painting of me are HERE

Well since The Band is on hiatus for the winter (as defined by me to be November through March here in NY) I have a little more time to do other stuff, like re-design AndyT13! There's plenty more updates to come but I'm pleased with this start. Go ahead and poke around some if you're new or just coming back. We're much less graphically challenged around here now and hopefully a little snazzier lookin. Just CLICKY!
