I'm way behind on photographing and posting my portraits - more to come

Heidi - my dear friend for decades.  Sometimes painting people I know well is very difficult - so many head games going on!  But got lucky with this one.  This painting really flowed off the brush AND its a real good likeness.  thanks you Schwiegs

psssst - Heidi is the mother of Sofia - the girl in my header


Often after working on one painting for a while, I will switch to a new panel and paint quicker, and freer. 
and most of the time - as is the case with these - the second one is my favorite

Nadia - oil portrait painting

It's been a while since I've posted but you don't think I've stopped painting faces do you?  Heres a bunch and a few more coming soon....
dropped this one - smudged the chin, below is a quick little 6x6" which I like so much more than the first.  BTW - this is Kate Huntington , who is the artist who has been hosting the painting group I go to and is a great artist in her own right - check out some of her work HERE.
