Do or Dare?...Portrait Demo Tonight.

Sink or swim? Join me tonight at the San Fernando Valley Art Club where I will be doing a public portrait demo. One hour and twenty minutes to paint a sitter chosen from the crowd. Should be fun!!!

This sketch is a demo I did in my recent class at The California Art Institute. NEW SEMESTER NOW ENROLLING. Email me for details.

Enjoying painting on a somewhat distressed board I prep. myself. The paint gets sucked in like ink on blotting paper. It takes several rounds to make it work.

Should I leave those boards home tonight? Play it safe? Do or dare?

It's a wonderful painting! Good luck with the demo! I so admire that you can do a painting on demand like that. If only I lived a few thousand miles closer, I would come and watch!

I expected last night's demo to be great and I have to say that it was one of the best I've seen you do!!


Gastone has been out of town and didn't get home on Monday or Tuesday until very late (he's trying to catch up at work) so I almost didn't come.... So glad I did.

You ROCK, Johanna!!
