        The first painting of the African American man was the painting that I liked after I looked at it for a while and read the description. The description noted that it was supposed to be mixing contemporary and classic types of art by infusing the classical pose with modern clothing and colors that a sense of juxtaposition.

The painting of the six women was the painting that I did not like. I didn't think that it really had any meaning behind it so  I decided to read the description. The description did not actually describe the purpose or meaning of the painting which led me to believe it did not have any message at all. The one thing that I did like about this piece was the size and move theater type of feeling it created. It looked as if the painting was a still from a film.

The painting that I really liked as soon as I saw it was the one of the man painting the portrait of the woman within the painting. I really liked how the brush strokes were obvious and the paint was layered. It had a lot of texture and the colors that were mellow tones that all worked well together.
