Well, here he is.....DONNIE! I have officially started the painting process for ArtPrize!!!! My goal is to finish two paintings per week, and I am well on my way this week. I debated on the size to do....I couldn't go too large because of the sheer number of portraits, but they had to be large enough for the details of their faces to come through! I settled on cutting a piece of my watercolor paper in half and let that be it :) Here is the first portrait, of Donnie! Please say a prayer for him as you look at him! I know I did as I was painting. I feel as though I am going to get lost in wondering what brought him to this point of his life. I wish that we would have had more time to get to know everyone's story. One thing I do know is that he is at a point in his life where he is experiencing a rough patch, and could use your prayer. I hope that you will remember Donnie tonight as you cuddle up in your warm beds.
