Downtown Palms

Last night was another First Friday exhibition downtown Daytona Beach. To enjoy the cool evening breeze outside of the exhibition space, I set up on the sidewalk and painted this view looking north, 8x10, oil on masonite. $300.
It was nice chatting with the many art patrons who came and other artists. On top of that, I sold a painting at the end of the night, "Sunglow Pier" from last weekend! All around a very nice experience.
Gestern abend hatten wir wieder unsere First Friday Ausstellung. Da es ziemlich warm im Gebaeude war, stellte ich mich mit Staffelei draussen auf dem Gehsteig auf, wo ich diese Szene produzieren konnte, waehrend ich mit vielen Besuchern und den anderen Kuenstlern plaudern konnte. 20x25cm. Und am Ende des Abends verkaufte ich noch eines meiner Bilder, "Sunglow Pier" vom letzten Wochenende. Im grossen und ganzen ein toller Abend!

I love your blog! I'm a painter and graphic arts student, and New Smyrna Beach is my favorite place on earth. I plan to return in 2010 for more training at the Bob Ross Art Workshop...can't wait!
