Siamese obsessed!

I have a little obsession right now with Siamese cats and their owners.  Below are some great photos I found online.  Trying to decide which one I want to paint.  What do you think?
Not sure who all the women in the photos are.   The second photo is Jane Mansfield.

Recent painting of a friends mother

Just thought I'd post a recent painting I did of a friend's mother. Here is the painting and the photos I used as reference.  I liked the top her mother had on in the small photo.  I like the way it came out. Elizabeth lives in Canada and is in her 90s.

I get my inspiration from looking at tons of old photos. I thought I'd share some of the latest paintings I've done and the photos that I choose for reference. I like to take the photo and add a modern twist (and my own interpretation). I'd love to hear what you think.....

Studio pics
