Portrait Lab October 31 - December 31





















At the beginning of 2011, I started my daily Portrait Lab project. The goal was to work on portraits on a regular basis, to experiment with media, and hopefully to grow as an artist. Near the end of the year, I discovered that it wasn't challenging to create a daily portrait, but daily blog posting was. The blogging aspect of it kind of wore me down, and I started to procrastinate a bit (a lot). I learned a few things about myself with this project, one of them being that I'm not a natural at 'sharing' online. Because I'm uncomfortable with unfinished business, here are the remaining portraits for my Portrait Lab project 2011, October 31 - December 31.

Vincor's Winter's Kiss Label



I illustrated a label for Winter's Kiss ice wines, and just received the actual bottles and packaging. Now that they have been photographed, time for sampling! Drunken studio time, anyone?
