This is my demo painting from yesterday, when I was teaching a private portrait painting class to beautiful Christine. We referenced an image of Christine as captured by Nick Holmes for the work.

I guess Basquiat is still on my mind as I ended up infusing some of his aesthetic onto her top ... which spilled into her face and hair ... all a process of what I call "Waltzing with the Weird" ... where I encourage painters to take the representational abstract and push it to a point where it can waltz with the weird, waltz with the wild.
