At Lunacon, Artist Guest Dave Seeley suggested artists doing live painting demos and he asked me to be in one on 2pm Saturday. Other particpants included Donato Giancola, Dan Dos Santos and Greg Manchess. Lunacon was the 50th gathering of the New York SF Society, and usually alot of fun. This year was impeded abit by a monster Nor'easter of snow and sleet. We got there late but better a day late than never!
Pictures-top down- Greg Manchess and Tor Books Art Director Irene Gallo and me. Middle-Donato Giancola(his own set up to the left) looks on adding the comment he liked the atmosphere I was painting. Bottom-Steve Hickman(right) and onlookers. This is the part I am scared I'll screw it up in front of everyone!
The Fortress Bridge(8x10 inches, oils $SOLD-see above)
But it all worked out. Here's the one-hour painting, I did out of my head. More on my classic landscape theme-lots of people liked it. I might post a better photo of this soon. It was great being around so many other terrific artists, and inspiring. Everyone inspired everyone else!
