My first demo...

...was a success! I actually managed to overcome the nervousness, be somewhat articulate and create a nice little (but hurried) painting with a semblance of competence. The audience was small but interested and I found it very rewarding. Alice lee, the president of the San Gabriel Valley Artist Association admitted to the difficulties of leading such an organization but I think she is doing an outstanding job and I have vowed to be more participative in the associations I belong to like the Pasadena Society of Artists, the San Gabriel Valley Assoc. and that pesky and somewhat out-of-touch California Art Club. Here I am sweating it out along with a sample of my "rehearsal" piece which was the door price. I kept the actual demo piece.
This is a view of Isabel Street in Highland Park. The bouganvillea was too much to resist.
