Art: Dubay... Or Not Dubay. That is the Question. by Artist Lindi Levison
I was paired with Kelli Dubay for the 5th Annual ebsq Portrait Swap, and when we exchanged digital images to use for inspiration, both of us noted that we looked a little bit alike (although I think Kelli is more of a knock-out than I am). I began working on Kelli's portrait and it was probably about halfway completed when my boyfriend walked in, saw the piece, and asked if it was me. I wish! But at this point, you can imagine how I came up with the title for the piece. :-)

I think Kelli has very striking features, so I decided to play them up even more by doing her in the not-so-unusual but striking pop style - large shapes, bright colors and high contrast. I also think Kelli has beautiful hair, so I gave it equal billing, so to speak, which is why her hair occupies almost as much of the canvas as her face.
