Yesterday I went to Scapescape. I was showing paintings and looking forward to sun, music and buddies. It was So. Much. Fun. I took tons of photos...many of which will be worked into future painting series.
These first three kids totally made my day yesterday. I had just gotten to the event and they asked my friend Christopher if he knew who "the artist who paints all the portraits is?" I raised my hand, me! They were all familiar with my work...and I didn't know any of them. I don't make a ton of money doing this, so that kind of recognition is the jam.
ALSO...I don't have contact for many of the new people I met/photographed yesterday. If I shot you yesterday and it was the first time we met, shoot me an email or add me on Facebook or twitter via the links to the right. I'll keep you posted on your painting!
These aren't necessarily the exact photos that I'll be working from (I took about a dozen of most people) and they may not be painted immediately, but they'll become source material for upcoming work. If anyone wants to be bumped to the front of the line, words like "I want to buy my painting" sometimes help. Wink. Wink.
I have more photos from the band portion of Scapescape that I'll post later. Right now I'm going to work on sweating out some of yesterday's Skinny Girl Margaritas (totally recommend these, btw.)
Happy Holiday! Eat some meat.
