 :heeha: These are wonderful Cyril. I am particularly taken with the portrait. I see the quizzical wonderment of youth being replaced by the steadfastness of wisdom and age. I think the real trick is to have both coincide in harmony. Well done Cyril, thought provoking to say the least.  :congrats:
Cheers, Val

Very interesting  :clap: :clap: The portrait represents either a split personality or a combination of the young and the old  O0

 :thankyou:  Gita , Kathy , Sharon , Dennis.

   To be honest, my intention was just to combine the 2 persons into one! i.e young and the old    :) :)..

Cyril,

So happy to see your work again.  Nice that you gave yourself a pleasant diversion from your studies.

Both are really well done and very dramatic.

The two-person face is a WOW! painting for sure.
