Oil on Raymar Panel
This is the beginning of the demo and, yes, I am wearing my "Artists Helping Artists" apron. AHA is hosted by Leslie Saeta who offers a wealth of information for artists. It is an invaluable resource for any artist or anyone interested in artwork.
I was so happy to see many familiar faces and meet so many new friends that walked the galleries. Lorton Workhouse Arts Center is such a great historic site to visit. The history is fascinating and the artwork is varied and magnificent! And on second saturday's they serve lots of food!
Here is a close up of my progress. It was fun to see this little painting come to life and see the delight on everyone's face as I added colors and discussed the why's and what's of my process.
I am nearing the end of a perfect evening...and this is where I found out I won first place in the People's Choice awards! The painting that won is titled "Barefoot Ballerina" and can be seen if you click the link.
It was a fabulous evening full of friends, fun, food and, of course, my demo! I can't wait to do it again!
