Open Studio Art Exhibition
My Spring Open Studios Art Exhibition was part of a weekend where hundreds of artists open up their studios to the public throughout the Mission district in San Francisco (Mission Artists United web site). Within the historical industrial building in which my studio is located, 1890 Bryant Street Studios, around 70 artists showed their work. I showed my latest creations, digital and non-digital, ranging from live iPad portraits and drawings of musicians to traditional figure drawings and an on-going acrylic portrait (the Friday night reception live demo performance shown above). Each day of the show I created a live iPad portrait of a visitor. Here are the three portraits.
