Artist in Action Art Demo Salado Art Experience

  My first time of painting in public - at the Artist in Action Immerse and Emerge this past weekend, was a blast!
I didn't take as many pics as I had wanted, but here is what I do have...

Painting away and making progress on this canvas!

I love this quote!  It is so true for me.
"I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious".
-Diego Rivera
Ciena with Winery Cat...that is really her name:)

Some of the materials I used...I also had a table set up for the public to experiment with painting techniques...Wish I would have taken a picture
What I learned from my Public Painting experience:
-Music is important
-Having the public art experimenting table was a hit
-Having my daughters with me was great (in this small setting) but maybe not so much if it were a larger crowd
-More than two hours would be fine (it actually went by fast)
-One glass of wine was perfect
-I wasn't as nervous as I thought I would be
-I would like to do it again

Thanks everyone who stopped by to see me!

Artist in Action Immerse and Emerge the Salado Art Experince

A Work in Progress...

 My next art event is this Saturday from 2 pm to 4 pm at Salado Winery, Salado, Texas.

Immerse and Emerge  the Salado Art Experience

I will be working on this painting during the event,
Artist in Action Christy Tremblay
 in hopes to get it close to completion. I don't usually work in public on my art, actually, almost never! SO, this should be an interesting task for me as well as interesting for the public to view. 

My typical "work" time of creating in my studio is very solitary.  My dog Finn does join me on many occasions...if he's not sleeping on the couch.  Painting for me is meditative and an inward experience. Any noise, except my music is distracting.

I decided the best way to paint in public for this event would be to have a painting that is about half way complete...A Work in Progress!

This way, I can add the details to the painting and not worry about the first layers needing to dry.

I'm sure I will learn a lot about myself as an artist!

Check back to see an update and pics from the event.
