In January, I had my first experience with the Brush Off! A live painting competition hosted by THEMUSEUM. Somewhat akin to “Survivor” for artists.
Twenty two artists, five rounds, and one winner!
The night began with 2 qualifying rounds.
Two groups of 11 artists faced off to make it into the final 3 rounds. I was in the second of the 2 face offs. Guests walked through the crowd watching each artist as they created their piece. We had 30 minutes to finish a painting based on a theme set by THEMUSEUM, and the audience would determine who moved on to the next round based on ballots cast.
After each round the paintings were collected and hung on the silent auction wall, where guests eagerly made bids in hopes of taking home an original work.
It was tough competition, but thanks to the overwhelming support of friends, family, and fans I was one of the top 3 artists in the final round!

All in all it was a fantastic evening of Art, Community, and Creativity!
