Live Party Paintings

Posted Apr 2013

My Agent recently asked if I could do something New. LIVE PARTY PAINTINGS ! What that is is that I just set up my Oil Paints at a Party, and spend the contracted time painting One Large Canvas that represents the Party.

I'd enjoy that very much. My Agent needed Samples of my alla-prima style of Oil Painting. I sent here these ~ paintings that I'd made back when I was Teaching Oil Painting.

I made the following three paintings as demonstrations on the first day of some semesters:

I made the following painting at a Street Fair. It got people to stop at my exhibit because they liked the entertainment part of watching ~ apparently that's why my Agent wants to offered it to her Client. This one was the view outside of the park.

The following painting is just a mishmosh of all sorts of things that I was showing my students. Back when I was teaching, I would keep a 6' canvas on the wall ~ so I could quickly show whatever it was that I was trying to explain to different students. (I never painted on their paintings). This is the only one I still had around.

I'm looking forward to the Upcoming Event ~ Party Painting! It's really fun. And I can do a good job of it. But I explained to my Agent that it's not worth my while to take any jobs if I'd have to pay for people's clothing, walls, and furnishings. Not that I ever left paint stains, but it is a possibility. So she must get a paper in writing in which the Client agrees to take responsibility for any messes or health concerns.

Note: And as always,there is a kill-fee for events that are canceled for Any reason, including Weather.

Newtown, CT

Posted Dec 2012

We're constantly shocked out of lala land. Did we forget the fear of 9-11? Or being brought down by Hurricane Sandy already?

Last night, I drew at a swanky party on Lexington Avenue. My wild pictures. A hard-working sweating belly-dancer. And then.

Almost all packed up to leave. A man comes up to me, aw gee, he just arrived too late to get a Caricature. And he tells me that he came down from CT. Newtown, CT to be precise. He said that he's in shock because his little 5-year-old neighbor was just buried. She had been in that terrible school incident. He showed me a photo on his phone. Of her with a few of her friends.

We can remember the people who died in this week's terrible incident. And now we can even remember the man who lived nearby. Need we only remember those who die? I like to remember all the people who show up on my path.

Exaggerated Fashions

Posted Jul 2012

More Fashion Sketch Samples. I want to point out that good Fashion Sketches are Exaggerations ~ just like real Caricatures are Exaggerations. What's good about Artwork is that it's something different than the actual Object. It's what we see as Filtered through the Artist's eyes/mind/heart. The viewer can relate to the Artist's vision.

Here's what I saw. Here's what I drew for you. I hope you can see that I Exaggerated both the Faces And the Fashions:
