New Painting from my Live Art Show
Happy Autumn Equinox!
I have a new painting in the works, the result of my live art show at the SHC Block Party in the Garberville Town Square last Thursday (also the Harvest Full Moon). I had such a great time painting for the crowd, and am hooked on live performance painting! I love to choose subjects that are challenging like portraits and figures to push myself to be better (and get respect when I pull it off!).
Here is what I painted as well as scenes from the show...
|I went to the show with a dripped canvas|
|after 5 hours....|
|after 8 hours...|
|still a work-in-progress, will be working on it this week in the studio...|
The painting to the right is by the great Sonny Wong of Savage Henry fame...and of course the fabulous Razzle Dazzle passing through. The entire 8 hours I painted, people kept coming up and offering feedback which adds a wonderful dynamic that you can't get from painting in the studio, and the little girls were loving the mermaid painting I displayed. It is really fun to paint in my local community, and I was amazed how many friends told me that they never knew I painted!
My next Live Art Show is October 5 at Arts Alive Eureka at Humboldt Herbals.
Thank you everyone for coming out and supporting the Arts!
I look forward to sharing more art and inspiration soon...
Enjoy the beauty of Autumn...have an inspired week!
