Mark and I got to Easton at 8:30 am, scouted out a location to paint, and checked in. at 10:00 am the painting frenzy began, and for 4 hours i painted my heart out. at 2:00 we had to move our easel and paintings to line a block for potential buyers and the judges to take a look at our work...
and my painting sold within the first 10 minutes of the sale!! i was so relieved! i unfortunately didn't win any of the prizes, and i'm not gonna lie, i was super disappointed. i was so pleased with my painting, especially for it being my first competition, and reallyyy thought i had a chance.
but at the end of the day, and even after not winning, it was still a great day! Mark even had a blast too, just watching me paint, and getting to explore the town of Easton. he sees me paint all the time, but rarely from start to finish. we promised each other we will go to every event like this we can. and even with time, gas, and materials considered, i still made a little profit from the sale of my painting :)
for those of you who aren't painters, i think its still a great experience to see how artists work, be surrounded by beautiful work in the cutest little town, and the opportunity to collect work from "up and coming artists" :)
