Paint the town


Hi there, I will be doing an event in a couple of weeks in a town close to here. The event is called paint the town and it is in Loveland, Ohio. I purchased 12 custom frames from Franken Frames. I plan to fill all of these frames, they are 5 X 7. This isn't a plein air event so they don't care if you paint at home or there but I do want to paint in town several times during the week, be visible and talk up the wet paint sale on the last day. So this is one of the little gems, I hope to have maybe 7 painted before the event starts and then paint the rest on site. My "great" idea is to paint small and be able to sell reasonable, hope it works. I'll post them as I finish them. Have a great day! SOLD

Hi Gwen, This is a building that started out as the water company I believe and not it is a restaurant. One of the many great old structures in this town. Thank you for stopping by my blog. :)

Hi there sweet Shelley, Have to have a plan, right? lol Fun to paint a building once in a while, they can be very challenging though.

Susan Carlin said...

Wow... you're so organized! I'm looking forward to seeing all of your Paint The Town paintings. This one is wonderful.

Barbara Pask said...

Hi Susan, I just came from your place, lol. I was commenting on the fantastic painting you did online last night. So glad you like this one, hope someone has to take it home with them.

What a wonderful thing to do! I have been asked to paint a little town up the West Coast called Mamre for an exhibition in Spring. It must be very exciting. I agree that it is easier to paint small when en plein air, and also we have found that the world economic crunch has hit art in a bit way. Small is good for now. Looking forward to the results.

Hi Carol, You should do the event near you, I'm sure they are all different but probably fun. This one changes from year to year, a few years back it was strictly a plein air event and that was especially fun.

Hi Barbara!
Good to "talk" with you on the video today. Isn't it interesting to watch.
Your work is wonderful... I guess we are all trying to learn, huh??
Be well.

This is my favorite so far of your paint the town series Barb. It really holds together well. Nothing looks out of place.
Good luck with that event.
