These are paintings in progress and aren't finished. I started them a while ago.
Sometimes I get stuck. It's hard not to judge a painting before it's finished. I shouldn't, but I do. When something's in the making it's usually not pretty, but it's all you see. (Kinda like kids, but that's another story.) So, I judged, and got very discouraged. I put the bottom one aside and started the top one. I'm 'feeling it' better with this one.
It's not the models. They are both beautiful! They also happen to be my sisters.
I think now I've halted because of my paintings skills, or lack thereof. I know some of you are going to go, "oh right, she can't paint, not. I can't draw a stick figure". But from my point of view, I'm still a beginner and don't have everything down, so I hesitate. Paintings are reflective by nature and take time. But, not that reflective. And shouldn't take that much time.
So, I'm posting - just to get them on my mind again and to maybe see anything or have something come to me.

they are looking awesome! I know what you mean, sometimes you gotta just leave a project alone and come back to it.

I think that stopping the processs is an important part of creativity. It can give you a new perspective with the work you are doing. It is especially good if you are discouraged.
