Last night I was invited by Craig Reynolds to do a demonstration for the Gadsden Art Association at the Gadsden Museum of Art. There was a great turnout, and excitement was in the air for the upcoming Southeastern Plein Air Festival. I was as nervous as a cat doing the demonstration... but folks like Evelyn Brannon and Elaine Campbell made me feel at ease with their questions. Halfway through I realized, "Hey, I've never done a demonstration before..." and then I got all nervous again. :) I decided to have a drawing when I was finished to give the painting to one of the crowd that had to endure watching me paint... and Anna Mullin (who can paint her own apples) won the painting. She seemed appreciative :) Thanks GAA for all the work you do for building up the arts in the Gadsden area. I appreciate you.
