Demonstration at Grove Park
This morning I met with a group of painters from the Southern California Plein Air Painters Association at Hosp Grove Park in Carlsbad. Weeks ago, when I was asked to do the demo, I was hesitant because I'd never done a "formal demonstration", but decided that it would be a good experience for me, and I turned out to be right! It was an absolutely beautiful morning, and the eucalyptus trees were radiant in the sunlight. Thank you God! I had a wonderful time, and completed the first 10"h by 8"w demo in record time (It must be sort of like giving a speech-when you're nervous in front of people, you talk fast) I was drawn to the image of one of the artists painting in the sunlight, and decided to include her in my second 10"h by 8"w painting of the day. After painting, it was great to walk around and see what all the other artists were doing and talk to them about their work. Thank you to all the artists who battled rush hour traffic to watch my demo and visit Carlsbad!
