Following a 2-week break from work to welcome my new daughter to the world, I thought it about time I finished some paintings. The plan is to exhibit as early as I can in the new year, so I'm aiming for at least 4 (and hopefully) half a dozen pieces I'm proud of to put to gallery. I thought I'd get the fresh eyes and feedback from the CA community before submitting for real.
These first three are oils on canvas. The first was painted from a photographic portrait that I took from the net. I'm halfway through another three paintings which I'll add to this thread on completion.
