This past Saturday I painted for the San Clemente Garden Club Spring Festival, April 9th. Such a great opportunity to finish a painting in one sitting - good practice! Not only that, it was a great way to have publicity with many people walking by watching me paint and talking to me. Fun! I didn't win the competition, the winner was Rita Pacheco with a beautiful painting of sunflowers. I look forward to studying with her in the future.
BUT - I was in the paper local paper with a picture of me painting. I'm going to head to San Clemente tomorrow and see if I can get a copy of this paper.
Here is the painting I finished called: Garden Festival 2011. Each artist picked a flower arrangement to paint. The flower arrangements were also being judged by the public.
Garden Festival 2011 is a 11 x 14 inch painting. The original and frame is on sale for: $65.00. Please go to my webpage and click on 'BUY' to purchase this painting.
