For a newbie to the concept of an “art battle” I was pleased to participate in the 4Storeys Up Art Clash this past week as a fundraiser for The Linden School for girls located in midtown Toronto. We started with 6 artists and ended with two finalists, myself and a Linden grad/alumni. We were allowed 20 minutes per round and as the sun was setting on the rooftop we finished the final round. It was an entertaining event and loads of fun. While I came in second, I am pleased to say that both paintings were sold and went to a great cause.
I am in the process of getting photos for the event and will post them–but in the meanwhile here are three paintings I did as a practice run for the event. Each took 20 minutes to paint and are done in acrylic on canvas. I never realized how stimulating and fun an “art battle” could be….
I am pleased to be participating in this years’s art clash for the Linden School. The Linden school is a girl centred non-profit charity that focuses on girl centred education. It’s a great school and a great opportunity to give something back–my daughter is graduating this year. Boy it really did go fast…..apparently tickets are going fast as well! For more details you can contact the Linden School directly.
