‘Art Meets Hospitality’:
Paris at The Barnes
I painted the scene at the ‘Art Meets Hospitality’ 14th Annual Summer Outing for Philadelphia area professionals in the meetings, hotel, and special events industry on July 17th, 2019, in The Barnes Foundation, a magnificent museum that houses the wonderful art collection of Dr. Albert C. Barnes. The event was organized by the Mid-Atlantic Events Magazine – many thanks to Jim and his great team and the fabulous staff of The Barnes!
The theme was ‘An Evening in Paris’ and, as you’ll see from the replay video above, I started off with a 19th century map of Paris as my background canvas. The tools I used were the iPad Pro 12.9 (3rd Gen.), Apple Pencil 2 and Procreate app. Guests were entertained and intrigued to watch on the large LED screen how the painting evolved from scratch to completion. I showed the time-lapse replay from time to time during the evening. Sometimes guests watched themselves being added to the crowd scene (some of them shown below pointing at their representations in the painting!)
Thank you so much for being such an integral part of the 14th Annual Hospitality Summer Outing!
We appreciate all that you did to make the event such a success and for being so great to work with. Your artwork was a huge hit — it was the center of conversation for many guests — and everyone was in awe of your talent.
It was a pleasure to work with you for this event and we wish you all the best with every future endeavor!
