Which brings me to my workshop yesterday. Attending a free demo put on by a major paint manufacturer at Art & Frame of Sarasota, a great, locally owned candy stor……oh wait, it’s an art store, I was impressed by our presenter. Staying to participate in a workshop in the afternoon, I found the class interesting, but don’t see using the image transfer process useful for future work for me.
A pro, who makes a living through his art, I liked his work. Near the end of the workshop, one student asked if he exhibited locally. He doesn’t do that kind of art, he smugly responded. He doesn’t do work that matches the sofa. Therefore he believes his work won’t sell in an area filled with tourists and snowbirds. Implying what I wondered? That all tourists and snowbirds are incapable of appreciating or understanding his art?
Contemplating his comments, I chuckled. Wondering what he’d say if he knew I were painting to match my guest bathroom.
