I arrived on Thursday afternoon and the weekend outlook was fantastic, hot and humid. I checked in and met my lovely contact person, and explained my duties and what was expected of me.
I was expected to paint on the grounds and interact with the guests. Everything worked out perfectly.
On Friday morning I started painting at 7am. It was hot. I finished a 10x18 panel by 12 noon.
I managed to tape one of the umbrellas on the beach post and was very secure to withstand any wind gusts.
On Friday evening the hotel hosted a wine and cheese reception that was attended by some guests of the hotel as well as some local residents. It was a wonderful time. My wife joined me on Friday along with my standard poodle Lacey. She had a great time.
In the end, I met some wonderful people and great food, and future sales.
I did sell this one at the end of the day. 10x18 oil on panel.
Painting time, 4 hours.
