Do You Like My Oil Portraits?

These are some of my Oil portrait works. I haven't done any portraits since 2008 (out of choice!!!). Though I enjoyed painting when I did them I found them too stressful. I am enjoying sinking my teeth into doing more contemporary art. I enjoy the freedom of using colors and not worrying about missing a smile or a wrinkle. Were my attempts worthy or was I right to stop making portraits entirely?
