This past Saturday was the Park Road Parade in West Hartford. Stefanie (below, getting her moustache) had the wonderful idea that our new groovy group, WeHa Artists Emporium, should march in it.
So we gathered together, with paint brushes in our hair, berets, art smocks, moustaches, and out new silk screened T-shirts (modeled on Angela, below) and looked the part of a group of rag-tag artsy folk.
Stef rigged an easel to a dolly and we painted as we walked - WHICH IS REALLY HARD TO DO. I kept moving toward the easel with my brush and it kept moving away!
Look - we're so official we even have a banner!
Here's the group as we progress down Park Road...
... and here we are with the finished painting. I think it turned out pretty good, considering a bunch of people collaborated on it IN MOTION.
It was a lot of fun, and hopefully we got our name out there via the papers, TV (there was a local film crew) and the bookmarks we handed out. Now, if only we could sell some art!
WeHa Artists Emporium is an online group consisting of artists in the West Hartford area and art lovers from anywhere. See our Facebook Page here, and if you want to join, please do!
Thanks so much for stopping in. The last few days have been crazy busy with little time to blog, but I'll be putting together the Open Studio inventory very soon and will give you tidbits along the way.
(Open Studio Hartford is Nov 15 & 16th. More soon.)
