Me, my lovely daughter and paint around assistant and the finished painting I designed.
The Paint Around at the Splash 2015 Gala for the Winter Garden Art Association was a huge success. The experience was a lot of fun, but very intense and nerve-racking at the same time. The three of us had about an hour and a half to finish all three of paintings that each of us had designed and drew ahead of time. I started with the painting I designed for 20 minutes, then worked on Mike’s painting for 15 minutes, then Rudy’s painting for 15, and then got mine back and finished it in around 40 minutes. We matted and each signed all the paintings.
We were so focused, we were oblivious to the crowds and on lookers watching us paint! During the course of the evening volunteers took donations for raffle tickets and three lucky winners were drawn and took home our paintings! One of my dear friends happened to win the one I designed!
It was a lot of pressure to finish a painting so quickly and work on someone else’s work! It was all for a good cause! Thanks to everyone who supported us and watched us paint!
