One of my favorite artists, Karin Jurick, has started a new blog I am very excited about. It is called 'Different Strokes from Different Folks' She is going to post a new photo every Wednesday and is inviting other artists to paint their own version of the photos. She will be posting the results. What a great idea for artists and art lovers alike! This week the photo is of her dog Jack, who she recently lost. How well I understand the pain of losing a dear pet. This is my pastel version of Jack. If you are not familiar with Karin's work visit her blog...she is a wonderful artist!
