these portraits are really wonderful...do you have models or are you working from photos? Are you going to Karin Jurik's workshop in NYC? Your colors and brushstrokes are a delight.

Very nice brushwork as always.

You managed such a beautiful, soft expression - especially given the fact that your reference was a mug shot!

This portrait series just keeps getting better and better. I love the way they are cohesive in style but each has it's own unique energy and color palette. Superb!

I'm really enjoying these portraits. They have such a loose quality in the brushwork, yet you capture the nuances of each personality.
Where does one find a mug shot? Here in Canada, I can't imagine where you could find them.
