June 2010: I intend to continue to profile contemporary artists once or twice a week. On the other days, I intend to draw… whatever I darn well feel like!

Today’s artist is Canadian Donna Mulholland, known as The Happy Painter on flickr. Her work is indeed happy – I love the colorful, loose and easy (seeming) marks Donna makes whether she’s painting portraits or illustrating her life.

You can see Donna’s artwork on her flickr imagestream:

Photos of Donna and other artists’ portraits of her can be seen here:…

We’re having a Portrait Party on flickr – almost 300 artists drawing each other! If you’re an artist who’d like to draw/paint other flickr artists, please join the Portrait Party at:
