Contemporary need not mean abstract, necessarily. This little piece is of a local inhabitant of my beachfront neighborhood. It contains many abstractions based on color theory, the reality of 2-D composition, and cheating anatomy.
Please feel free to offer C&C.
Contemporary simply means of the current times.

Since the definition of "Abstract" is so ... abstract .... and Contemporary only a little less so, there are no hard and fast rules here. This is very welcome.

I want to live on your beach! These types rarely have anything to do with us mere mortals.

She is cheerful, full of action, lovely colors.

I always enjoy seeing how people create from imagination, and your work with this figure is beautiful - just enough information to make it real for the viewer, but loose and exciting at the same time. Lovely.

Thnx everyone, to answer Katie, it is an oil, using process color, Quinacridone magenta, cad yellow deep, and phthalo blue, no black,and t-white.
It is 12X12. Three days start to finish. I didn't want to post before I made some corrections, but here is the final, it's not much different.

Thanks everyone, I have made a few corrections to this, but mostly it's just nit-picking. My local gallery says it's just too sexy for their family clientele, there must be someplace I can get a foothold with sales.
I think I'll look into Artist's-Marketplace.com

Gorgeously curvy both her and the painting as a whole. Love it
