You're Heartless

You’re Heartless

You Should Leave Now

You Should Leave Now

You Tell Me

You Tell Me

Why Did You Do It

Why Did You Do It

Without Me They're Nothing

Without Me They’re Nothing

That's a Good Enough Reason

That’s a Good Enough Reason

Okay

Okay

We Can Get Out Of Here

We Can Get Out Of Here

I'm On To You

I’m On To You

I'm Just An Ordinary Guy With Nothing To Lose

I’m Just An Ordinary Guy With Nothing To Lose

Not Really No

Not Really No

    love these portraits, the use of a wide ranging palate of colors to describe the skin, the structure of the forms, the moving and heartfelt expressions of compelling emotion, all fantastic!! http://www.kirsteinfineart.com
