On May 8th from 5pm to 8pm I will be working on some of my Line Pattern series paintings at the Belle of Dayton distillery. Please drop by, look at the paintings, and chat with me while I paint.
I will have several finished paintings on display. Let's do an experiment - come to Belle's and before you drink take the time to look at my paintings. Then have a flight of Belle's Vodka, Rum, and Rye. When you're done, look at my paintings again and fill out this short survey:
1. After your drink did you like my paintings more? (Did they get better or did it just seem that way to you?)
2. Do the abstract / non-representational lines suddenly have deep meaning for you? (If so, then you really need to sit for a while before heading home.)
3. Do you find yourself counting lines and trying to figure out which line is on top of what other lines? (It amuses your friends, keep trying.)
If you liked having art work while you had your drink at Belle's, then buy a bottle to take home to thank the brothers LaSelle for letting me paint there. If you really liked the distillery's products then buy a painting to take home to remind you of the great time you had. :^)
The event is part of Art in the City a city-wide event organized by the Downtown Dayton Partnership. There are going to be a lot of art-related events around town that night. After you visit with me at Belle's check out the other artists doing demos in other businesses, browse the art galleries, watch a street art competition, watch murals being painted, listen to live music, or go make art of your own at one of the art stations!
