I'm participating in a holiday portrait project over at Different Strokes from Different Folks blog. This is my first attempt at this nice lady's portrait. I have no idea who she is; they distributed everyone's photo randomly and we're just going to see what we come up with. I'm not a portrait kind of person, so it's not lovely, but it's a start. I'll give it another go today and see if I can improve it before I turn in a final final.
