Julia Kay's Portrait Party

"Flyn Ryon" oil on canvas 6"x6" by Rachel Schlueter

A wonderful occurrence is happening on Flickr.
Artist Julia Kay has started a portrait party and artists
that are members of the party are painting each other.
No self portraits are allowed. People are posting photos
of themselves and artists are drawing, painting and
whatever other ways of expressing their take of the
photos. Most of these artists have not even met each
other. Go check it out: Portrait Party If you want to
see the photo the portrait is based on there is often
a link under the portrait,

I chose to post Rachel's wonderful new painting because
I love it and because we are good friends and I could call
her up and ask for permission to post.
Go check out Rachel's blog and her Flickr.
And the photo this was based on:
