Another painting demonstration




I was asked to do a demonstration for the Moncton Art Society.I felt very honored to be chosen for this event.I am not a great public speaker , but it was a bit easier than last time.Although I feel the painting didn't turn out as good.The magic didn't really happen tonight. It happened in my preliminary sketch. Sometimes I feel like my adversity to following rules in a negative thing. Wanting that freedom to create liberally without a plan is like gambling ,but now that I have vocalized that in my head ,maybe ThatS what I'm addicted to. The rush of that immediat struggle, it's the thrill of the fight. ok Enough cognac for me tonight hehe

Great stuff Amber, Very gutsy!!

Amber, I sure admire you for giving a demo! I am uncomfortable when my husband is in the room and I am painting, let alone a whole crowd.

I don't do much planning either and I like to work that way as well.
