Last night, I had the oppourtunity to paint a live portrait at Sunningdale Golf Club. It was for an event in celebration of medical resident students. Really happy I had the chance to experience painting in a setting like that. I've been moving towards expanding into doing more live Art at other functions, like weddings, etc. Such a great way to capture the moment in a most original presentation. While supporting local Arts too!
Now,.I have a TON of painting to do in studio (nothing new I suppose). Working the details which are impossible to paint in such short amount of time while there. Not a bad start though and I look forward to presenting the finished piece soon. Much thanks to Dr. Roth for having Kim and I. Great things ahead!!!! :)
The scene was packed and painting intense!!!! This year a new venue change inside the Goodwill conference center was much needed to accommodate the increase of attendance for this fantastic evening.
Live Music and amazing food... especially the samosas! Most of all.... the massive amount of superb talent and all the amazing Art that was created to make this night so special. At the end, it's all about the kids and I'm happy to give what I can.
Super honoured to have made it to the final round too! I had the chance to rock 4 paintings. The 3rd one I did of a sunflower field was the favourite. Last piece was all about fun, I did a portrait of the crowned Champion and one of my favourite local Artists in the show, Nic De Groot. Painting across from me the whole time! Once again, Huge congratulation goes out to Nic.
Every Artist involved is a huge winner. It means so much to the kids that get to benefit from all the programs that this event helps. The figures were around 9,700 kids had the oppourtunity to experience creative learning last year alone. Def looking forward to returning for round 4! Already have a pretty good idea of what styles I'm going to rock too.
Huge thanks goes out to everyone involved. All who attended in much appreciated support. Of course the sponsors and most of all... the volunteers. Their dedication and spirit of inspiration is so humbling. Massive thanks as always to my better half, Kim Doerr for snapping all the lovely photos you get to enjoy.
Thanks for staying tuned, always more to come!
