Last night was the 2nd in a series of portraits being done at the Don Valley Art Club on the singers of a upcoming production of "The Magic Flute" by Opera York. This production is to be held at the Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts. Last night's singer/model was a tenor in the upcoming opera - RICCARDO IANNELLO
It was a great night for painting and seeing so many friends and fellow portrait artists from the club.
Below, please see the different stages of the portrait I completed. To see other versions and pictures of the artist doing the portrait, please go to - http://www.caroler.ca/art-shows-and-club-events.html
Went to the club last Monday, to sell my painted cans to friends there and was fortunate to have joined them during their Christmas party. They kindly shared their festive goodies with me and Theo shared her printing plates and paints with me so that I could give mono printing a try. I didn't do the best of jobs but totally enjoyed the day and trying the printing process out. I hope to go another time soon to try the silk screen process also.
Thanks everyone in the Monday printing group.
Our craft show and sale did not turn out as well as expected. Despite our efforts and advertisements, we only had probably only 20 to 30 people show up.
If anyone has any suggestions of future craft shows that draw in large amounts of customers and offer low cost table rentals I would appreciate the information and contacts.
I had a great time at a supper and gathering of many friends and fellow artists from the Don Valley Art CLub last night. It was a great turn out, good entertainment, good foods and good friends.
It was wonderful to see everyone.
It was a highlight in an otherwise very difficult day.
