Gloria Rendón: 2010.11.09, originally uploaded by Julia Kay -.

Today’s portrait is of Colombian Artist Gloria Rendón, known on flickr as gloriaerre.
I love her light and good-humored touch with color and subject matter, whether she’s working digitally or traditionally, making drawings or making mosaics. Her portrait of me is one of my all-time favorites, which actually made it harder for me to draw her even though I’ve been looking forward to working from this great source photo for some time:

As you can see, I’m still struggling a bit with open mouths…
