|I hosted a joint OPA (Oil Painter’s of America) / Verde Artist Guild paint-out yesterday at the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park. Although the morning started in drizzle, it cleared up beautifully. We had around 30-40 artists attend from all over the state.I spent most of my time “hosting”, ie, walking around and saying hello, making people feel welcome. I did do one “quickie” painting (top image).
It was so great to see this many artist’s create their own interpretations of this great old building. I think next time maybe we’ll organize a show around these events and invite collector’s.
