A Portrait of My Hometown

A Portrait of My Hometown – ended April 30, 2014

This is a brand new challenge and it comes courtesy of MarianT (thank you, Marian). The basic goal is to paint as many different portraits of your hometown residents as you can before time runs out. Adding up your 10 most valuable portraits will also be something to keep in mind.

Top 10 — Add up the value of your 10 most valuable portraits. No consignment store sales or no cashing them in for opportunities.
