Portrait Giveaway

I've been trying to get my daughter to understand that her artwork is good enough that she could feed herself through college doing portraits for people. She doesn't believe that anyone would think she's that good. I talked her into doing a giveaway to show her that people would be interested. (Pardon the glare on the glass).

This is a self portrait she did. It looks exactly like the picture she drew from.

This is a portrait of her sister. Erika was in a group of people in the photo. Liesl singled her out and drew only her. Once again....exactly like the photo.


And this is her little brother hanging from the railing at Niagra Falls. An exact duplicate of the photo she drew from. I don't know where she gets it, I think its amazing.

So....here's the deal.
She is offering the winner of this giveaway one 8x10 drawing (unframed). The winner will email her a photo and she will draw the portrait from that.

All you need to do (as usual) is leave a comment. Leave two if you are a follower. Leave three if you facebook, twitter or blog about it (I really want her to know that she can do this). This drawing will end Sunday January 23 at 10:00pm mountain time.

Leave an email address in your comment so I know how to contact you.
GOOD LUCK!
