One of Aaron Hagan's paintings, the 'Picasso Turtle' was inspired by Pablo Picasso. Hagan says, "It sort of looked like a turtle character to me, almost broken up, fragmented. The artist, Pablo Picasso, did something called cubism where he would do things from multiple perspectives, on different picture planes. Like a side view, and a front view from someone's face. So I sort of see it as a fragmented turtle. That's why I called it, Picasso's Turtle."
There is also a selfie contest that participants can enter to win a painting by taking a picture in front of a painting in the Casa building. You would then hashtag, #CasaSummerSalon. You can share it on Facebook, or other social media.
Aaron Hagan says, "That's how you can win another one of my paintings, which is a 20X20 inch painting called Kaleidoscope."
The paintings will be up at Casa until August 21.
