Garden Party Demo


12" x 12" Acrylic on Gallery Wrapped Canvas

I was invited to paint during a garden party at a lovely home in Southlake, Texas.
The Arts League, which is an arm of The Arts Council of Northeast Tarrant County
 sponsored the garden party along with a fundraiser silent auction including a variety
of donated baskets filled with wonderful items. 
The funds raised are going to a summer art program for children. 
 During the first half, guests had refreshments,
 visited and listened to a string quartet play beautiful music
 while they bid on the silent auction items.  During this time I painted the
floral above while some of the ladies watched. I donated the painting to the 
auction and at the end of the party the painting was auctioned off in a live auction. It went to 
the highest bidder for $350.
What fun it was painting in such pretty surroundings while violins played in the background.

The painting of the this single Gerber Daisy was done from the centerpiece
of flowers on the serving table at the Garden Party.
I gave it to the hostess who had graciously offered her home for the party.
