Contemporary colorful paintings of fun and figures.

I am back from traveling and ready to paint! This is a demo for a beginners class at the Chaffee Art Center. Everyone had a good time and some really nice paintings came out of it. I focused on creating the design using geometric shapes and how to create varying brushwork. When I do these demos I don't feel like I am painting subject matter that is most exciting to me, rather I try and choose a few things that offer teachable moments and subjects that are interesting and simple enough to not be intimidating. I am still refining how I do this; the learning curve for me seems to be infinite! On another note, I went to Washington, D.C., a city of abundant free museums and excellent artwork!
