On the weekend of September 7&8, 2013 I had the pleasure of participating in XOS Exchange Street Open Studios in Pawtucket RI. This event brings together many artists and art lovers in the growing creative community of the Armory Arts District if Pawtucket. I was fortunate to be a guest artist with gracious hosts in Riverfront Lofts where I was able to transport my studio for the weekend. During the weekend, I set up my easel and canvas and worked on a live painting demonstration throughout the 2 days. It was an excellent way to involve others in the conversation of how a painting is created and how to determine the direction the painting goes. Here are several progress photos of the painting I worked on.
