"Close Enough"

8x6 Oil on board

This is my very first portrait in paint ...I entered it on the Daily Paint Works website.  It is under one of the many challenges going on.  This one called "All About Me".   A wonderful painter named Carol Marine hosted this one saying "nothing to learn here,  exept perhaps that portraits are frickin hard!"  Haha YES they are!  but it was fun as well.
Now my hair really isn't purple and orange, and at this point I don't know what color it really is.  Besides it's cheaper to try out a new look on canvas don't you think?
