Over 1000 ArtPrize audience volunteers have tapped their inner-artist and painted with me during ArtPrize. Many of them were hesitant to paint but the smiles and grins you see in slide show below express their excitement as they added a little something to our collaborative paintings. I will be with HOOT at The Courtyard by Marriott Downtown, 11 Monroe Ave. N.W. on Saturday afternoon Oct. 8. HOOT didn't win a monetary prize but I'm a winner for having the fairy tale experience of painting with everyone HOO participated. My painting style is very loose and free and I'm so happy that so many of you ArtPrize attendees got to experience the joy of painting my way, without a purpose at first, just playing with color and texture and having FUN. Our collaborative pieces, Hoo's The Artist and You that's Hoo turned out AWESOME!
