Artful Fundraiser at the Museum "Paint Your Town"

Original post made by Claudette McDermott, Del Prado, on Jun 10, 2009

As one of the Artists that participated in the recent Fundraiser "Paint Your Town" I have to say I really enjoyed it. This was their first attempt and I think they did a great job, but perhaps they can listen to the suggestions that Artists make for next year and it can be even better. The turn out with the amount of professional Artwork was just a handful, but there were some beautiful pieces done by seasoned artists that were auctioned off at very reasonable prices, for the collector. We painted from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. and I used every minute of it. I worked in oil and it usually takes me at least a couple of days. I am also not a landscape artist, I'm more of a surrealist/abstract impressionist so I found it challenging. I painted at the Milfleur store on Ray Street (the oldest building in Pleasanton, the old jail) along with a couple of other artists that worked in watercolor. Some of the Artists that participated are showing their work at "The Berry Patch" on Main and Angela.
