Gallery Show/ VH1 Event in Aspen, CO
It was interesting to see the 'behind the scenes' of a Reality Show. I had to sign all of these waivers so my paintings (and myself) could be aired on T.V. Uh, that was a no brainer. Sure you can show me on VH1! What artist wouldn't want a little free publicity on national Television?! :)
I must admit, it was rather strange having two cameras in my face and boom mics overhead...and act natural! I just pretended they weren't there, and gave the ladies a little spiel on my art process. They feigned some interest...and then it was on to other hot topics, like who was that boy someone hooked up with the night before?! :)
Group picture of the Reality Show's Actresses and Friends. I guess we'll know more about them in January when the show airs. Apparently, the producers are so optimistic about the show...that they've already signed a contract for a second season--even before the first has aired! I for one, will be tuning in every week! :)
Just hanging out with the divas! :)
A little bit of drama unfolded (in front of my paintings!) as two of the actresses (infamous for not getting along!) had a bit of a spat! This lasted for over an hour! I'm sure it will be good T.V.!
Ben is a character! He's the token gay guy on the show, and is super hilarious. Someone brought in a parrot and Ben and the bird instantly became the center of attention; that is, until the Gallery owner made him take it out!
This is one of the Collectors who bought a painting that night. A really nice guy! You'd never guess that this man owns his own island! :)
This is the staff at the Gallery. These are the guys who sell my work! They are an amazing sales team. It was really fun getting to know them all better this weekend.
After the Reception/ Show...we had a late night dinner. The food was exceptional. Aspen has really amazing restaurants, and every night we were there, the Gallery took us out to their favorite places.
Below is a little video clip from the Reception:
