     Suddenly out of nowhere comes this urge to get back to painting and going out on a limb  (that means No Flowers .
I've always liked painting people,  women mostly , lets face it . they're prettier..  so I did a couple 30 minute  ... ok ok   40 min.. w/c sketches, wanted to stay loose, I think I did just that . drips and drops and all...    BJ

  1. I think they are lovely - Is the top one a self portrait? That red hair is gorgeous!
