Demo at the Franklin Art Association

Last night I gave a talk and painting demo at the Franklin Art Association. There were about 40 people watching me do these two. YIKES!

 I don't love demos- there were a lot of serious painters there and I
felt intimidated to say the least! But I think they enjoyed watching my process... I had prepared the canvases prior so was winging it, taking their suggestions.
A couple of people told me that they loved seeing something so different- there were lots of realists there - One guy said it was "glorified doodling"which in a way is true...
I like the way they turned out -the top one is done  ( another person said it would make a good wine label- love that idea!)
The one below still needs a lot of work... things are emerging.
