Early November Portraits!

These are my most recently completed portraits. The top portrait was done in pastel and measures 18 X 30. I love this young lady's expression and eyes and had a lot of fun with the more impressionistic background and colors. The middle painting is an oil painting measuring 20 X 26 of 4 totally different cats (both in personality and appearance). The 4 are loved and cared for by two wonderful people with whom I adored working. The bottom portrait is a 20 X 24 oil on panel of a lovely little girl. The portrait's background was created in a slightly different style in order to blend well with an existing portrait of the subject's father done by another artist many years ago. I was happy to have been able to include hands as I love painting them. Thanks for looking! Back to work!
