On April 28, 2018, I experienced my first festival. Not only was I selected and approved to be a vendor, but I was also written in the program to do a live “painting” activity with the audience members. Together, we produce a painting that was auctioned off as a charity fundraiser.
This event was such a success and I can’t wait to do this again in 2019.
I was so grateful to be allowed to create an original painting for my Frat Brother, the award winner for the Sara Lee Brand Ambassador and National Food Truck Champ for the amazing seafood at his restaurant “The Twist”.
Meditation and MasterPeaces was such a treat for me as well as the participants. As a featured art instructor, by request of the Life Coach Schan, I learned so much about the process of mediation and how free it allows you to feel. We incorporated art into the process of the more traditional form of mediation since art is already a type of mediation. This original painting I created was done so by the explanation and vision of the Life Coach.
My first attempt at a Paint and Sip was a success. Not only was it my first time instructing a Paint and Sip, but it was my first experience with it. Yes, you heard right! My FIRST ATTEMPT, just happened to be my FIRST EXPERIENCE. I was excited, I was nervous but I remembered I was doing something I loved, something I’m passionate about and something I could make others enjoy doing. I handed out blank 16 x 20 canvases, frightening for some I’m sure,
Today I had my first opportunity to draw in front of bystanders and beside other artists. It was a moment of a lifetime. I met some amazing people and found myself shockingly meeting the challenge at hand.
