Free Box!

I was asked to paint lettering for a 'Free Box' recently.  The concept is similar to that of the Little Free Libraries, but instead of books, the box can be used for pretty much anything.  It's a great idea, where people can drop off anything that they no longer want, and also might find something they could use themselves.  I had fun with this project, and it was fun to do this type of font with a brush instead of a spray can.

Live Painting at the BRAVA Women's Expo

I was a featured artist at the BRAVA Women's Expo last weekend.  Each day I did a live portrait painting demonstration lasting 90 minutes.  Here's the results from one of the days.

Last week I participated in the second annual Dane Arts Buy Local (DABL), an event focused on connecting artists with the community and local businesses.  It was an honor to have been juried into the show, and even more so to have won second place among so many wonderful artists.  More information about the event can be found here.  Thanks to everyone who made it out, to Dane Arts, and all of the sponsors who made the event possible.

Live Wedding Painting

I don't do a lot of 20-30 minute paintings, so when I was asked to paint a friend's wedding from life, it was a mixture of excitement and trepidation, but nonetheless I welcomed the challenge.  I was happy with the results.
