Art In the Park: The Wet Paint Show

We couldn't ask for better weather for LACMA's Art and Museum Council's Wet Paint event on Sunday, at Roxbury Park in Beverly Hills. I had even more fun than I expected and the day went by in the blink of an eye. I enjoy watching people and at this event enjoyed watching the people watching the artists and every now and then turned around to find people watching me. I appreciate all the feedback and encouragement, as well as the jokes and wisecracks! I am happy to have some new collectors-thank you, your support and enthusiasm are welcomed. It was great meeting some of the other artists. Plein Aire painter Laurie Hendricks was painting next to me and her approach to working and her energy were a refreshing breath of air. My only regret of the day is that I didn't get enough time to see what all the other artists were up to. I have this shot of myself painting, thanks to Cassandra Tondro, one of the participating artists. You can see more images of the event on her blog today.

Hi zataod,

It was.

Katherine, wonderful. We have the same plein air painter's box I see, heavy huh?

Sounds like it was a wonderful time!

Hi rgmb,

Heavy and not terribly user friendly. As a friend said, trying to set one up is like trying to work with a new born giraffe. :)

They look cute, though.
