As an artist, it is very rewarding that someone feels a personal connection with the art that I make. At Friday night’s event, I was fortunate to hear personal stories of why people gravitated towards particular artworks. Thanks to all those who attended – it was great to meet lots of new people and hear the viewer’s perspective, especially on the new pieces that hadn’t shown before, such as new charcoal drawings on panel and the continuation of the flower/butterfly theme on pages from Anna Karenina that combined the drawn line technique that the promo film shows me using. A lot of my art found new homes and the two charity boxes raised money for the Freedom Place charity!
This is the art that I created during the Live Art event by ArtceteraIV at Roak nightclub. Painting live in front of an audience was inspiring and fun although a little nerve-racking at first. As an artist who works alone in a studio, it was great to get a chance to talk with art appreciators and fellow artists at the event. Thank you to the successful bidder, Kevin, who won my painting ‘Reasons Why I Love This City’.
