Falkner Art Invitational

The show at the Falkner Winery was so much fun. I painted with some good friends and despite low sales due to the economy I had a blast. There were some really good artists out there who I had never met nor painted with, Rich Gallego, Steve Curry, Marla Baggetta, Michael Alten to name just a few. Stunning works coming out of all of these artists. We had 2 beautiful days to paint and by the end of the show there were some seriously good work hanging.

I ran into fellow artists Bruce Boycks, Karen Winters and Laura Wambsgans and had a great time talking with them. These are some really good artists themselves.
Here is a pic of my 3rd painting in progress.

Some of the work being hung during the show. That's Laura Segal from the Segal Art Gallery in Monrovia.Here I am trying out my new french easel during the show. It's pretty good but unless you scrape off the paint from your pallette it is very easy to get paint smeared onto the drawer and lid. Once you begin to fold the legs and rest it against yourself you end up with paint on your clothes. I never had that problem with my trusty pochade box. Friends Bruce Boycks, Rich Gallego and myself at the start on Saturday.Rich Gallego and Steve Curry before the show reception started.

Hi Jaz,
I'd set you up with the guy but then who is going to work the gallery...because I know you'd both be off somewhere smootching, hahaha.
Say hi to that guy in black for me.
