"The People of Alabama"
Oil on Linen
Today was one of the most memorable days for me of the Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days Challenge!
I was commissioned to complete a live event painting during the inauguration and it was just so much fun and such an honor! I was thrilled to be a part of the beautiful ceremony! That painting is a surprise to be revealed later...although here is a photo of the work in progress early this morning:
The painting I'm posting for the daily challenge....even though I've done 2!! Woo hoo!! .....is one I did after the inauguration painting was complete at Governor Robert Bentley's "Thank You, Alabama" party. I painted in many of the people who were there and I love that I had a Boy Scout, a baby, a National Guardsman, a beauty queen, old people, young people & all points in between (even my sweet husband made it into this one!). A good representation of Alabamians. So much fun to visit with people as I painted! I was honored to be there with the Alabama State Council on the Arts.
A lovely day all around!
Thank you looking!
