I could write a lot about each of these events individually but I'll let my paintings do the talking for me. You know what they say, "A picture is worth a thousand words."
Whenever you bring a large group of talented and hard working artists together in an inspired venue, great things are going to happen. I appreciate these opportunities that set a marvelous stage on the cultural scene, offer a good challenge to the artist, partner with a good cause and offer the best of our works to savvy patrons and collectors. Many thanks to the awesome venues and fine folks whose generosity and passion for these events are what make them happen.
I did this night painting live at the Gainesville Downtown Community Plaza recently during one of their last concerts of the season and before closing and renovating for the next year. So I guess it is already some kind of historical document. I really enjoy setting my paint box up in front of a challenging subject and having a quick go at it. I think I captured something good of the light, color and energy. That could never have been achieved working from a photo. A lot of people became interested as I was quietly going about my business creating and there was a good exchange of energy with all of them.
