It felt great to be selected by my gallery, Art Ventures NWA to participate in the Community Partner Fair at Crystal Bridges Museum in Bentonville, AR. I spent Sunday afternoon, set up at my easel and doing a live demonstration painting. I chose to work on a still life painting of the British flag, the tiffin box, jasmine flowers and a glitzy ribbon I picked up at one of the South Asian clothing markets in London in August this year. They were easy to transport and to set up!
I was unable to use oil paints inside the museum, so I worked on my underlay painting in acrylic paints. I managed to take my still life props with me and place them near me. It was a beautiful afternoon with people wandering the main lobby and checking out all the participating vendors at this fair.
Thank you to my gallery, Art Ventures NWA!
