The event was scheduled to happen, regardless of weather conditions.
|I was fascinated by the corridor. It was long, colorful, but empty. There was a light at the end of it. So I started by making this sketch.|
|I began adding color at this point. I was using a small travel set of water color paints.|
|Really big painting, done outside. Notice the ladder. It was fun to watch the artist paint on this enormous canvas.|
|Ahh, sunlight at last. I enjoyed the lovely weather and celebrated it with this painting.|
All in all, the paint out was a good experience for me.
Here is another artist's story about the paint out: Roberta Bolt's story
Followup: On Wednesday, October 3rd, the committee offered the paintings for sale, in conjunction with the weekly farmers' market at Roswell Park. The sale ended abruptly when a huge wind kicked up and started blowing away the paintings. But, before the abrupt end, one of my paintings was sold to a doctor at Roswell Park. I believe that the painting, the one of the long, empty corridor, will have its home in Roswell Park.
