Live Painting at Arts Alive

I had such a great time at Arts Alive in Old Town Eureka this past Saturday, where I live painted at my Artist Reception at Humboldt Herbals.  This is my second year in a row showcasing my art at this location, and I love the women who work here, so I thought it would be fun to paint for them.  The introvert in me was of course nervous, so I brought several canvases to either paint owls or do a portrait.  I got to the show early to "warm up," deciding to paint the portrait of the ethereal looking woman.  Here is what I completed at the show:


The painting is still very much a work in progress.  I am considering making her a mermaid and adding a blue sea, as I have been missing the ocean lately.


Thank you everyone for coming out to the show!
I had so much fun painting for you!


Next month I will be returning to Humboldt Herbals for the October Arts Alive, where I will again be live painting.  Until then, be sure to visit Humboldt Herbals at 2nd and D St in Eureka to see my collection of paintings hanging throughout the store.  

Have an inspired day!
