Live Painting in Progress, “Dolphin Dreaming in Cambier Park,” 16″ x 20″ x 0.75″ Acrylic on Canvas, Private Collection.
It was an honor to be invited to participate in this awesome event to raise awareness for Legal Aid and supporting artists. Art Aid Naples’ hosted 50+ local and well-known Florida artists at their 2nd annual QUICK DRAW Plein air event. We started with a blank, primed canvas and painted in Cambier Park from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. with live bands performing on the stage. At 12 PM we brought our painting to the stage for the charity auction. The event was live-streamed on social media. 60% of the proceeds went to support children in need in our community, who are receiving free legal services from the Legal Aid Service of Collier County. 40% of the remaining proceeds went to support the artists.
