Today’s portrait is of American Artist Elizabeth Lynch, known on flickr as EAGHL. I love her quirky magic marker portraits – they have wonderful character and spirit.

I’m about 3 months behind on portraits, and I apologize to everyone I “owe” but I loved this photo of Elizabeth and so got inspired to draw her right away.

Julia Kay-1We’re having a Portrait Party on flickr – more than 300 artists drawing each other! Here is Elizabeth’s portrait of me from the party. If you’re an artist who’d like to draw/paint other flickr artists, please join the Portrait Party at: www.flickr.com/groups/portraitparty/
