A Bunch of New Paintings

I finally waxed my latest EIGHT paintings. Waxing is not my favorite thing to do so I tend to wait until the last possible moment to do it. It's just such a bitch to get the wax smooth and the larger the painting, the harder it is. I like the look though so for now, I'll just have to suck it up!
"Walking to Church", 30" x 24"
I decided not to cover the eyes on this painting and use if for my upcoming series on immigrants, that I have yet to title. I showed it to my dad and he thought the bars would ruin the painting. I don't agree, but he is a bit biased since it's a painting of him and his mom.

"Swimming Pool", 14" x 11"
"Shooting Arrows:, 11" x 14"

Untitled (for now), 12" x 12"
So it turns out, this is a Latina woman so I can feel okay about not covering her eyes and adding her to my immigrant series. I think I made a lot of people happy by doing this.

"Sitting by the Pool",  20" x 16"

"Casual Conversation", 24" x 24"

"Woman Holding Child", 10" x 10"
I'm still undecided about this series. I like it in concept but I don't think my execution is quite there yet. I will try a few more before I decide if I will continue it.

"Girl Holding Teddy Bear", 10" x 10"
As you can see, not all of my paintings are always successful. Some of these came out great, others, not so much. I'll let you decide which ones you think worked.
