Contemporary colorful paintings of fun and figures.

Some paintings almost paint themselves. Even though I was very deliberate about painting this, I did it quite slowly, for me, as I was talking with a friend the entire time I did it. I like how the limited brushstrokes are able to say a lot. It has an edgy quality, but there are enough soft edges to balance it out. I really like the limited primary colors as well. I painted this over a panel that I had covered up a painting I didn't like. I had painted it with a turquoise paint I never use because I don't like the consistency of it. You can see the turquoise showing through here and there, which I think works well.
