The Show

What a fun experience this is! Basically I get to paint all day and talk to people who come to the show to watch me paint. It was strange in the beginning, having people stand behind me and silently observe me working. This is definitely not a show for a budding artist. You have to have your technique down! It takes a lot of confidence to have people watch your every move. They are always surprised to see me wielding such large palette knives and loading on the thick frosting-like paint onthe canvas. Few have ever seen an artist use this much texture! I also use a blank canvas as my palette. Eventually I turn the palette into a painting...but the layers begin at this first stage as I mix paint. That's the great thing about this show. Every artist has their own interesting way of creating their work. No two have the same technique. Collectors love coming to this show because there is always something new to see.
