Since you don't ask for any comments, I just think a wonderful lady has painted this. I'll get myself into trouble one of these days. Could be very wrong anyway.

Yep, okay, well "hello!" - you got me.

I am so embarrassed! This painting reminds me of something that I did in kindegarten and consequently got into much trouble for not being serious about my creative endeavors when infact I was...but enough of my-emotional-turmoil-babble.:)

I will elude to a lesson well learned (which most of you already know)...simplifying a figure does not make the task of painting a figure easier...one definitely needs to understand *well* the "complex" version of the figure first.

One thing I like about older paintings is that they show people doing things and wearing things that give the paintings historical as well as aesthetic value...sigh...maybe I'll play with this some more and see what I can do.

Thank you Mikey, Caroline, Jerry, and ArtistAnne.

But maybe this is a style which speaks volumes.

Michael-Ann;
Simplicity ("childish naivete") often reaches and touches in a powerful way. Much more so than "complexity", which often appeals to the viewer who says to him/herself "this is good because I can not do it" and not much else.
If you played with "Coffee" in photoshop and crop it right above the head of the man in the foreground, (in other words, leave the foreground action out altogether), you'd have a wonderful "childish" creation.
Try it, you'll see.

I couldn't have guessed. Good expression on the people's faces. No fuss, no tralala ... direct strokes resulting in a very expressive painting.
