HHG Mug Shot #9 - 'The Moniker'

"It is week 9 in the search for the Hilton Head Gang...the notorious members of Karin Jurick’s workshop. The trail is still hot... so we shall continue on. We are determined to feature one member each week until they are all accounted for.
Chris 'The Moniker' Werst comes by her alias honestly. She misses nothing. At beaches, Galleries, tourist attractions... she retains everything. She is very proficient at finding out and remembering names of people, places and things. She uses this to her advantage. She will call your name and then act like she knows you... by the time you realize she is a stranger it is too late... you are digitally immortalized and destined to become canvas bound.
Her whereabouts is totally unknown as she does not... at this writing... have a blog."

I didn't get to paint Chris' mug last week (I was busy partying ;-)... ). But when I started it yesterday it just seemed to paint itself. Mind you, that doesn't mean it didn't go through the awkward stage!

I might not be able to keep up with our weekly mugs in the next months, but I'll try not to fall too far behind. It's such a great exercise, amazing fun and wonderful way to stay in contact....

Oh, and I have to add this: Chris, go and start your own blog!!! We miss you in the blogosphere!


  1. Chris looks great..love the skin tones you use. I learn something from each mug I see! and you are right...Chris...start your blog!!!

  2. I like the skin tones also and the choice of background color.

  3. I love your loose strokes and colors. Really great, party girl! We will miss you so hurry back with all your wonderful work!

    A message to Chris: START YOUR BLOG!! An order from your fellow gang member!!

  4. This is great Regula! I love your style, loose and colorful! Such a treat. Chris looks great too!
