Drawings of everyday life

Exchange

This week I made an exchange with a JKPP member EAGHL: she send me the drawing she made of me:
Paulien Maria by eaghl for jkpp 2011

and I send her the eyedropper drawing I made of her.
EAGHL  / Elizabeth Lynch for Julia Kay's Portrait Party
On the website Artbistro EAGHL wrote this information about herself:

EAGHL (pronounced eagle) is an Oklahoma banker of three decades, retired to a small, rural community. The evening hours in their quiet home left a choice of watching television or watching the spouse work crossword puzzles. Eaghl decided to start coloring, but rapidly ran out of coloring pages. There was a special love for nudes art but there were no coloring books or coloring pages of nudes, so Eaghl created a few. These black and white coloring pages were then colored in with permanent ©Prismacolor markers. The local acclaim was soon forthcoming. An artist friend in a nearby Missouri community began to commission these markerings with heads of friends placed on the nude bodies in the pose of choice. Eaghl continues to work on portraits from photographs of friends, family and some celebrities. The art does not capture the individuals to perfection, but their likeness can be seen and they are recognizable.
