July was a busy month for LIVE paintings on canvas at weddings in the Bay Area!

Above is the finished piece for Yoona and Glen. This couple has a great sense of humor, as I easily discovered at our initial meeting months before. Glen is from Australia and requested that a kangaroo and a jar of Vegemite be included in the painting. I was glad to oblige. Most of the piece was painted on location at the Falkirk Cultural Center in San Rafael, CA. Finishing touches were added in my studio.

This large canvas (24 x 36″) was created for Sarah and Andrew at the Silverado Resort and Spa in Napa. The Mother of the Bride commissioned it. I presented it to the couple and the bride’s parents on a busy street in San Francisco, just before the family went to the theatre.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is the final painting for Joe and Alea, celebrated at the San Jose Marriott. I did not have to exaggerate the height difference between this couple…she is five feet nothing and he is 6 foot 8!

The Falkirk Mansion in San Rafael is just a few blocks away from our workshop HQ at Rileystreet Art Supplies. It is a favorite venue for us, due to the amazing architecture of the mansion and the breathtaking variety of plant life in the gardens. The scattering of sculpture and found-object artwork adds even more to the array of choices to draw. Here are some sketches by students.

Patty chose to feature the decorative glass on  the veranda, in the shade!

Stephanie’s sketch in the garden

Stephanie chose a whimsical sculpture, paired with an aloe plant. She makes them look as if they are dancing together

Kimberley’s composite sketch

Kimberley manages to combine three views very successfully: a large stone planter, a front view of the mansion and a section of the veranda.

Anne captured the colors and curves of the mansion.
