My Exciting News of a SOLD Painting; and an Evening of Drawing in the Dark in Winters, CA Open Mike Night

Color me happy when I learned that this painting done at Tacos Jalisco a year ago sold at the Vacaville Art Gallery Members Show January 2014. It was framed in black. They told me that the woman who bought it liked Avant guard art. I guess that means my art is "different". I'm glad she liked it. And "The Pink Haired Girl" has a new home.
 


On Thursday night this week my husband and I went to Winters to Root Stock where we listened to musicians preform at Open Mike Night! The musicians were fully illuminated, but I was sitting in the dark. I could barely see the pen marks on my paper, but I persevered and drew on ...


and on ... This gave new meaning to the Blind Drawing Technique ...

 and on ...

Each of these performers sang 1-3 songs. I drew these in black ink pen quickly, in the dark.

I did not draw the one group we went to see, a former colleague of my husbands from his teaching years; I was too engrossed in listening to them. They were last up. They were very, very, very good.

The following evening we went to hear his friend sing and play with a different group at an Irish pub in Davis. They preformed Irish music, very enjoyable. But that is more art and a totally different story which I will save for another post.

Thanks for visiting me and for leaving your comments that mean so much to me.

  15. Congratulations on the sale!!!! You have a definite style so I can see your paintings selling because they are very original. Wow...you got a lot of sketches done. It is hard to sketch in a restaurant/bar/lounge because they illuminate the performers not the tables. lol I always end up putting on my glasses so I can see a little better. lol I've thought about bringing a book light to shed some light on my paper but I don't want to distract the performers. I don't do this kind of sketching very often but it is fun to challenge yourself and do it. Bravo!!!
