Last night I got to paint at the Paint for Peace event in New Westminster. It was a lot of fun! There was a great turn out and a lot of very talented artists! It was a great event to raise money to build an orphanage in Cape Town, South Africa in 2011. After the artists painted live for a few hours the artwork was auctioned off.
I have always wanted to paint elephants so I thought this would be a great excuse to finally do it :) My piece was black and white with a herd of elephants. Here is the final piece. It measures 24x48"
Here are some pictures of the painting in progress. The one directly below is as far as I got, and then finished the painting at the event in front of a live audience. I was a bit nervous about panting in front of people but everyone was so nice and friendly, and there to support a great cause. I had a great time!
