Large Party Scene

Posted Dec 2013

My Agent is sending me out to Paint the Whole Scene at a Party.

So I practiced a Scene when I was in Penn Station. Took a photo of the scene to show you, but I did not look at the Photo while I was drawing. I was working live, On the Spot. Just using old markers and small computer paper this time ~ to get comfortable with an ever-changing scene. Success! I loved it. I'm looking forward to the Event (where I would Not be tempted to focus on a garbage pail ~ lol ~ Parties are usually dazzling with their Party Decorations!)

Note: This picture is Unfinished. I only had about 20 minutes to work on it before I had to get to the Corporate Holiday Party.

So now I am also offering Full Party Paintings. That''s CARICATURES, FASHION SKETCHES, FACE-PAINTING, FREEHAND GLITTER TATTOOS, BALLOONS, And Now PARTY PAINTINGS Too!

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.
