Portrait challenge

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!
