"100 Faces, No. 58"

4 x 4"
oil on masonite
sold

Spent the morning warming up - literally and painting-wise. The best experience I have with this series is nothing is planned - no sketching, no colors intended from the start, no pressure. It's the best thing you can do, to limber up, no matter what the subject matter is.

Great painting and great advice to go with it. Amazing:)

I love your impressionistic brush strokes - you really have established a nice unique style of yours. And it shows up whether your painting is planned or spontaneous.
I believe that's what makes a mature painter - one with his/her own style, and that's the quality many galleries and collectors are looking for.

This is great. She looks like she's contemplating. I drove out to the country today, saw a hawk pounce on Lunch.

I love your paintings, I have a question, I noticed that you paint on 4x4 what kind of brushes do you use and what sizes?
Thank you

This one has a wonderful abstract quality to it Karin. Love the chunky brushstokes on the face against the smooth hair. Bold composition!

Brushes are flat, anywhere from 1/2" to 3/4" wide.
