Cast of Caracters

I have been working on these people for a few days now and several story's have come to mind about their life's and personality's. It is not until I paint there faces that the story's begin. Some of these characters will be in the Portland Art Collective annual art sale and some are going to Gaurdino Gallerys Little Things Show. I hope you can come meet them in person, follow the links for dates and time.

I'm not sure what Colman is holding but it is like a syringe made from glass.
Al has just trimmed his mustache for the show.
Yoga is getting ready for a workout.
What a good man Dart is ready for action.
I don't need to say anything about Art.
I don't know her name but I like her hat.
J.G. worked hard for many years.
 Look at the move Yoga is putting on good old Dart.
 You can never get everyone to look at the camera at the same time.
This is my dear friend Winnie, she is happy the weather has changed so she can spend the day at my feet. She is a Landseer Newfoundland named after the artist Sir Edwin Henry Landseer, who featured them in many of his paintings.

These are wonderful Tory. I love how just a slight change of a feature can give a face a whole new personality.
