I was invited to paint live for an event, at 111 Minna Gallery. I don’t get money for this. I do it because I enjoy it. Although I have decided to start charging for any other Live Painting event.
The experience at Minna was a peculiar one! I painted on stage and the only light I had available was a very dimmed color light. I couldn’t distinguish any of the colors I was using to paint. The easel was set up way too low and couldn’t figure out how to fix it.
On top of that, I had arrived late, due to horrible traffic; I was exhausted, my eyes were sore due to lack of sleep, and my back was killing me!
There were only two alternatives: paint and do your best! Or get irritated and paint and see what happens!!
I decided to go with the first! Blindly, I started applying colors here and there, and I moved all around the easel, and painted without looking directly at the canvas.
I painted and I did my best!
And this is the result! 👇🏼
The feedback I got was incredible! Made it all worth it! 😊
