The Santiago Art Walk this past Saturday was a lot of fun, thank you to all who came out and made it a great event. As usual, there were lots of galleries showcasing their latest works, live music, exotic food trucks serving all kinds of mouth-watering foods. I myself had some kind of braised beef sandwich, jicama fries, and a Thai Hollywood chicken burrito – yes I was that hungry after painting all night. Speaking of which, here is the finished piece that I was painting live at the event:
Port Orchard Trees II
I got a lot of attention while working on it, which is normal considering people are generally interested in live painting. Which is why I love doing it so much at my events. I guess I’m lucky enough to not be a hermit when it comes to painting, and I can still be pretty sociable while flinging paint around all night. I definitely wore the wrong shoes though – it was pretty warm that day, and I had on some leather sandals which kept my feet cool, but were not great to stand in for 4 hours straight. And I guess I could have just sat down and painted, but then it’s so much fun to walk around and talk to people as they come by. I was also so busy painting that I completely forgot to take any photos, which is why I only have these few:
Thanks for a great show everyone! Stay tuned for the next Christopher Clark live painting event.
