I held a Pop-up Poolside Paintings Preview Party last weekend. What is this event? It is a combination of studio reception, part artist talk, and part just summertime fun! I thought up the idea a few months ago when I was thinking of combining two things I love to do –art and having people over for fun & food– as a milestone and celebration for completing 10 paintings in a new series on time. I will get things done if I make a deadline for myself, and having a party to invite people to in order to get paintings done seemed like a good and fun idea.
