Isn’t the above portrait breathtaking? It’s by my friend Karine Swenson, another WAWP in my life (Wonderful Artist/Wonderful Person). Karine and I met and became friends when we both lived in Salida, Colorado, and she owned a gallery and carried my work… she now lives in the high desert of southern California.

Karine’s beautiful figurative work appears on pages 47-49 of Drawing Lab.

She is also an AWESOME abstract painter… take a look at her website!

Karine is giving away another book and will pick the winner randomly on Thursday, July 22. Head on over to this post for a chance to win. Thanks Karine!
