New paintings

A few new paintings sent off to Gallery Russia for the winter.

 "Kasia's Bluebells" I worked on this one for my video demonstration. Which by the way I am still working on. So sad that its taking a while to finish up. 
 "Mama's little girl" I really enjoyed painting this one. Love the dark/light pattern and color harmony.
"Bearded Man" This one was done in an open studio session. I think one of the funnest things to paint is men with beards. The contract of very dynamic and bold features along with the soft flowing edges of the beard, just works. One of my favorites for sure.
