Lotta Joy


I admire talent.  I don't have any, but there are some really talented people in this world and I have the pleasure of following one with a great talent for drawing.  She has recently picked it back up after not having done it for a long time.  To say I'm impressed would be an understatement!  

Here's how it went down:

The contest is: GUESS WHOSE EYE THIS IS.

Send me an email telling me whose eye this is.

Don't give your guess in the comment section - but I DO expect a comment. I'm greedy that way.


If no one gets it, there will be a new piece of this person's face on here tomorrow.

I'm SO looking forward to seeing how many bits and pieces I can place on here before it's figured out.

If someone guesses correctly - right off the bat..... well.....shit.....

(1) the contest will be over:

(2) the winner will get a portrait,

(3) I'll wonder how the hell they figured it out - and we will forever shun them.

(4) facebook friends are not eligible.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CRAP!

And the winner is:MS A


This isn't the same pose, but look at that likeness!

We shall now begin the shunning .....

Okay, Ms A....if that is really your name...hmmmm... whatcha want?

Mark said...

Yeah you did get yourself in to a fair bit of trouble there but that was quite impressive :) The drawing was great too.

YeamieWaffles said...

Congratulations on guessing it right, I love the drawing as well like Mark. It's a shame it's now got you in trouble though, oh oh! :P

Gigi said...

And you claim you have no talent! :-)

Karen said...

WOW!.. that was one incredible guess!! She has talent too...

Mamma has spoken said...

I think it's the romantic in you that helped you get it right. I mean what woman hasn't watched Gone With The Wind twenty bazillion times and wished for her looks?
OK maybe I'm the only one......
Congrats! Did you win the drawing of Scarlet or of yourself?

Althea said...

Wow, that was a really good drawing! :) x

baygirl32 said...

I want a re-vote! this contest was rigged :)

Deborah said...

What Gigi said!

I'm amazed at your gift!

George said...

I always knew you had talent. You certainly did a great job with this contest. I'm sure you'll be forgiven (but disqualified from any further contests).

Help! Mama Remote... said...

ROTFL!! Thats stunning work! Ok um gonna try to help get you out of trouble.

Margaret (Peggy or Peg too) said...

I agree with Gigi!
Jeez I still don't know who the hell that is with her whole face visible so there ya go....

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

How the heck did you pull that off? I am FLOORED!

TexWisGirl said...

holy smokes! you did GREAT! well, not from the other contestants point of view. she does GREAT portraits! totally impressed! i can't do people.

Sally said...

Well shoot! I was studying real hard, then read the rest. You rascal!! How fun. :)

lotta joy said...

That was the nicest post+link I have ever seen, and to think it points to my blog makes me all teary-eyed.

Now tell me what you want. I sure hope it's something I want to draw...(that's 100% of the ability to do a good job for you).

Will it be a movie star? A singer? A member of your family? YOU?????

The photo has to be well lit, but not by a harsh flash. I enlarge the photo to a giant degree, then pick out the particular visuals that nail the subject matter.....and I want to nail the person you request.

*chewing the pencils to a nice point as I write*

Pat Tillett said...

That is really good! I am so untalented in an artistic sense.

Lynn Proctor said...

Megan Adamson said...

Wow, that is great!
I was going to guess at Charlize Theron too...darn!

Love the drawing, who did it? You?
It is very good.

Mom of the Perpetually Grounded said...

Im a little late for this party but OMG! I knew who it was too! Can't mistake that eyebrow. She is very talented. You want me to divert her attention and keep her busy while you run? ; )
