I was pleased to be a part of the ART LAB live painting event at Centennial Park in Ybor City yesterday. Each artist was given a space to set up their easel and supplies. We were given the topic, "Florida's Finest," ten minutes before the competition began and then given two hours to complete our 12X12 art piece. This was my first competition and I had fun meeting other artists and the people who came by to cheer us on! The event was very well organized with a plethora of activities for children and adults. At the end of the day, my painting came in second place and I won a membership to the Tampa Museum of Fine arts and a gift certificate to the Art store, "AOE supply, inc. 12908 N. 56th Street, Tampa, FL 33617." Thank you to Thornhill Foundation for the Arts for putting on such a fun event!
