My portrait for the challenge on DSFDF

















I was so excited to be a part of Karen's portrait challenge. Over 180 people signed up to participate, Karen takes people and pairs them to do each others portraits. It is challenging and great fun, I love the variety of styles and faces! Here is my interpretation of the photo I received. Soft pastel 16"x 20"

Thanks everyone, it is very nice of you. I think I went safe and tight instead of loose and crazy the way I was first intending on doing it.
