My live painting experience Saturday night reminded me of one of my favorite childhood fables, Stone Soup. Only instead of adding ingredients to the pot to improvise a feast, everyone contributed their items to help me improvise a painting.
I began with some cardboard I had in the car and mounted it on stretcher bars left over from another project.
I added a few more pieces for texture.
From their purses, pockets, and cars, people contributed items for me to add to the painting.
And that is the final product.
A hot new orange cocktail? Not really. I needed to wet my brushes, so I used a cup of ice.
It was so great to have another chance to create a piece of artwork and I would love to do more live painting events in the future.
