I enjoy these events because you have the opportunity to hear directly from the public while you're creating your painting. The comments and questions can be very enlightening as to what people actually think of your work.
"This is so gorgeous! My friends and I have named you Mr. Shadows."
"So, how do you get the colors so pretty, together?"
"Have you done this before?"
"Hmm. No one else is doing what you're doing."
"I guess you know you're painting for women, right?"
"That's interesting. I guess you couldn't get the rest of the building on your little canvas thingy."
"Your colors are just perfect! How much do you want?"
"Did you mean to leave out the stuff on the door?"
"Oh…my…GOSH! I need to go get my husband. Will you, please, not sell this while I'm gone?"
Are you painting, mister? I like it. Can I paint. too?"
