Last weekend I was involved in a painting challenge at the Fletcher Jones gardens in Warnambool. The “paint off” was organised by the “f project” and the artists involved had two hours to paint a two by one metre canvas!.
The old factory buildings and the surrounding gardens were an inspirational backdrop to what was a really fun day.
I didn’t know how I would go trying to do such a big painting in such a small amount of time, and I must admit I wasn’t at all happy with the quite unfinished end result. But, it was great to be out of the house for the day doing my favourite thing!
Anyhow, I wouldn’t have been able to join in without my family entourage, which included my teenagers and my mother in law, I had to stop to feed Oscar twice, (I should have had a handicap!) which slowed me down a bit! I think its a wonderful idea though to get out of your comfort zone and I want to try this now in my home town. The winner of the challenge was Jess Meggs, who did a very cool portrait! The painting I did is for sale (will be a bargain!). Just get in touch if you are interested!
Have a wonderful day everyone …
