finished painting of Joe

I finally had a few minutes to finish this today.  Now he looks more like himself and less like some news anchorman on TV. :)  It's amazing how just tiny changes, subtle value shifts or the slightest adjustment to chroma will make such huge differences in a portrait. Those eyes right there--see those eyes? Those are the eyes of the man I love.

Here is what I'm working on today, "Liliana"

Lily, painted 'older' than she actually is. She always seems older than she is to me, probably because those eyes are always taking everything in. She misses nothing. She is very wise for such a young girl. An "old soul".
