Art at the Arnold 2010

The Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, Ohio on March 4 thru 7. This was the first year they welcomed 50 artists to paint live at the event and participate in competition. What an amazing opportunity to "color" with some incredible artists! Here are my two paintings. The seated male figure painted in acrylic in a matter of 4 hours from a model live (22" x 28"). The second figure "Brazil" is a large 30" x 30" 6.5 hour painting. All art was displayed for Arnold Schwarzengger and Sylvester Stallone for a private viewing and awards presentation.

3 Violins

Painting on these beautiful instruments is intimidating and exhilarating!
The violin "Lady White Snake" was painted and auctioned off to raise funds for the Pittsburgh Youth Symphony's trip to China!
The "Iron Maiden" violin was painted and auctioned off the raise funds for the Washington County Symphony Orchestra. As was the 3rd violin titled: "Audience of Angels".
