Live Event Painting
Have you heard about live event painting? My sister is a live event painter. She is hired to attend weddings, anniversary parties, and other events and she paints the event while the event is going on.
I took these photos of her painting of her friend's son's wedding. She arrives early to the event to paint the background of the painting. This is usually the interior space of the venue.
She takes some photos while she's at the event as she always needs to put the finishing touches on the painting.
She'll ask her clients if there are certain people they want included in the painting and then she will add those who will add interest to the piece. Perhaps someone is wearing a polka dot dress or a hat and they stand out. She might add them to the painting.
Wedding paintings will of course have the bride, groom and their families and the cake.
If you would like more info about live event painting, please email me your contact info and I will have my sister contact you.
And don't forget my blog giveaway, leave a comment on the 200th post and I will enter you in the drawing. The winner will be drawn the evening of May 3rd.
