from this week

a portrait from the last portrait group at the WSU Richmond, after a little refining

and another that has been sitting around for a while that I decided to do a bit more to

and another painting that has also been around for a bit that I refreshed and put into the Glenbrook Life drawing group exhibition on the weekend
