My DEMO next week! and Canaveral paintout coming up soon!

Hello all!
I wanted to invite you all to join me at the monthly members meeting at the Artists Workshop in NSB next Wednesday (directions here). The meeting begins with a social at 6:30pm followed by a brief business meeting and then my demo for about an hour to an hour and a half. It should be all wrapped up by 9pm. I will paint a painting in front of everybody, and answer any questions. This should create interest for my workshop scheduled for Fri/Sat Oct 13 and 14, and if you are wondering if you should sign up, come on out and check out my painting and teaching style. I am very excited and would love to see your familiar faces if you can make it. Public is welcome, and you can also learn about the nice programs the Artists Workshop offers.

Pre-paintout event

Last weekend I was in New Smyrna Beach at Clay Gallery, to help kick off the pre-excitement for the Canaveral Paintout in October. We had 6 artists painting scenes at the gardens while some 200 visitors walked around, chatted, and got some insight into the weeklong activities in late October. It was great to see old faces and meet new people.
Letztes Wochenende war ich in New Smyrna Beach im Garten der Clay Gallerie, um die Festivitaeten fuer den Paintout im Oktober zu starten. Wir hatten 6 Kuenstler im Garten, mit ca. 200 Gaesten, die mit uns schwatzten, und sich ueber den Paintout informierten. Es war toll, alte Gesichter zu sehen, und neue Leute kennenzulernen.

I painted the back of the gallery where the evening sun was throwing patches of light on the fassade, however in all the excitement I forgot my mantra of working on the whole painting all over, and I am not too pleased with the result. I definitely need to practice my painting a bit more, as we have been too busy with family and yard work this summer. And of course it was way too hot this year... But those are excuses, and I am looking forward to paint and hobnob with the other 27 great artists next month.
Ich malte im Hintergarten der Gallerie, wo die Sonne tolle Schattenspiele auf das alte Haus warf, vergass jedoch, am ganzen Bild gleichzeitig zu malen, und so finde ich es also nicht besonders gelungen. Ich muss auf jeden Fall mehr malen und ueben, doch dieser Sommer war sehr heiss, und wir hatten immer was zu tun mit Familie und Gartenarbeit... Nun ja, ich freue mich jedoch, naechsten Monat mit den anderen 27 guten Kuenstlern zu malen und mich zu unterhalten.
