The old lady in the window

I had a very productive day yesterday. The kiddo`s have been down sick so it has been very quiet the last few days. I finished up a few paintings that have been sitting in my `they are starting to fall apart, so i will put it away for a while box``. This one of the old lady in the window is one of those projects that really gets me out of my comfort zone of painting tight. It has elements that I love, the contrast of lights against darks and the imagery of what the woman is thinking about. It is a small piece measuring only 3.25 * 4 inch so my intention was not for detail but for impression. Hope you enjoy.

Girl in the braided scarf

My husband took the kids away for a few hours today so that I could throw some paint, and this is what I came up with. She measures 2.5 * 3.5 inch and is done on 140lb CP paper.
Hope you enjoy :)
