Wonderful Portrait Exchange (And Another Contest)

Here is the wonderful portrait I received from Rama Hughes of the Portrait Party. I just love it and I think (hope) that it really shows me.

Me By Rama Hughes

"the photo from which this painting of kerstin (above) was drawn has been used for so many portrait swaps that it seems like an icon to me now. i thought about asking for a new picture but i was curious to see how my version would turn out. kerstin's drawing of me on the other hand (below) took me by complete surprise. it's like a portrait of my daydreams!" Rama Hughes

If you want to have the chance to get one of these great portraits by Rama Hughes, just join the the happy birthday party contest. Everybody gets a chance and I have the honor of being one of the jurors.

This is SO great! This portrait pose has become sort of a Kerstin icon, and Rama has done a wonderful job. I am going to enter the contest - hopefully I can talk Tony into being my partner!

yep. i´m really happy with the portrait. it´s beautiful.
hey that would be great, if you could talk tony into it. tell him that he should draw a portrait of you showing were the ight comes from. lol. sorry, but whenever i read "tony" this immediately comes to my mind. :) it´s not about getting beautiful portraits done. it´s all about the fun and maybe having some good new ideas.

Your portrait of Rama is probably the best one any one has done of him that I've ever seen... what a genius idea!

@mrana: thanks. it is indeed a lot of fun. i have done a lot of portraits already for the portrait party. actually i started doing portraits just because of it.

@littlemithi: wow. thanks, mithi! what a nice compliment. well there are some which i do really like a lot more and there are quite a few things i would change, but still i like it very much and i´m glad he likes it. isn´t easy to exchange portraits with your art hero, but it was a lot of fun. :)

@mim, so you couldn´t talk tony into it?

Mim said...

He doesn't want to see my portrait of him - gives him the shivers to think about it :)

ksklein said...

well, he doesn´t need to see it. but show it to me. ;)
