|The Art Gallery of Willoughby, OH hosted the first ever "Random Acts of Art" this weekend. (My first time doing a painting demo, way more fun than I anticipated) The event took place during the 3rd annual Rib Burn Off.|
|Works in Progress|
|Arist and model. (kidding!)|
|My dear husband who helped schlep supplies and my display.|
|Leslie Edwards Humez, Vincenza Harrity and Diane Hoeptner|
|My demo, about 70% done.|
I admit painting in front of strangers wasn't my idea of fun. But it was fun. Family and friends visited, enjoyed the ribs, corn and live music. People saw my display of small cat paintings in the gallery window and felt impelled to share pictures of their dogs or cats from their smart phones. Also I got to see Vincenza in action, painting local sites with her (oh-so mobile and efficient) plein air gear. (She never needs an excuse to get outside and paint!)
Thank you George Ann of The Willoughby Art Gallery for hosting and a special thanks to my friend Leslie for making it all happen.
