"Who Gets the Chair Next?" acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas 12 X12 in. SOLD!!
Artwalk 2012 was held on September 8 and 9th. I showed 12 pieces, 10 in my own booth and two in the FCA Central Okanagan booth. While I sold only one piece, the one above, I had a great time, met lots of people and had great feedback about my work. The exposure for a new artist like me was excellent!
A view of my artwork and booth!
The obligatory Artwalk pose!
I brought my Guerilla Painter Small Plein Air box and did "demos" for the 2 days! I love doing this...it's an ice breaker, helps the time go and people love seeing an artist at work!
Putting finishing touches on one of my chair paintings! Thanks to my friend Angelika's daughter Anna for taking the photos!
I participated in the Artwalk Paintout again...we are given 15 minutes to complete a painting of a still life...this one was a plain white dummy head with a white cowboy hat...I improvised and this happy couple, Charm and Dennis, are now the proud owners of this piece!
I've posted all the paintings from Artwalk on my facebook fan page Sheila Tansey Fine Art
. Click on the link, and my photo album is ArtWalk 2012. And while you are there "Like" my fan page...I need more likes!
I'm also excited to say that I'll be travelling next week to Pasadena, CA! No, I'm not going to scope out the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (although that would be uber cool for the geek side of me! ) I'm off to attend a 5 day oil painting workshop.
In April of 2011 while I was listening to Artist's Helping Artist's on BlogTalk Radio
, I won the grand prize of an oil painting workshop with the two hosts Leslie Saeta
and Dreama Tolle Perry
!!! Check out their websites and artwork! Both of these ladies are very well known and successful artists and I feel deeply honoured to be attending. I will have a full blog report when I get back! Stay tuned!
