live painting

the night before thanksgiving, i did my second live painting. i was a little less prepared for this than the last one, the freezing wind through the open doors caused uncontrollable shivering, and the turnout wasn't quite what we'd hoped, but it was fun. i do think the time limit and pressure is what made it so great last time!  i have been using my recent one-eyed girl paintings as experiments for ways to play with and apply paint. i tried a thicker outline on this one, which i'm not sure i'm a fan of. along with my live painting, i had a very random assortment of artwork on display in the shop. despite the small turn out, i was happy with the positive feedback i received.

with my live creation.. and some kind of weird smirk.
