Painting No.1 March 14. 15x20 watercolor.
Okay, when was the last time you went to an art gallery and had strangers walk up to you, and shout over the killer music of a great jazz ensemble, "ISN'T THIS A BLAST!!?"
Such was my evening at Campbell Steele Gallery tonight. I've been to a zillion gallery evenings and they range from okay and kinda dull, to pretty good and kinda dull. I have not before had the experience I had tonight of seeing terrific work at a handsome gallery, and then also want to describe the evening as, "A hoot!"
Priscilla and Craig (owners) were thinking outside the box ( a tired expression, but still a pretty good one) and invited me to paint at the gallery during tonight's event. Like a life drawing session, except everyone has their clothes on and no one stands still.
Above are four pieces from this experiment.
