Art in the Gardens 2009

Jennifer has an audience of enthralled onlookers.

Weather was pretty good all weekend at Midtown on PGA Blvd. in Palm Beach Gardens. The event was from 10 am - 5 pm, Saturday and Sunday. I got started around 9 am, but had some trouble getting my tempera base to dry. Recent rains and no direct sun made the asphalt "moist". A hairdryer was brought in to complete the drying process, so the template could be implemented. It was nice to be in the shade all day, though, for a change. I was positioned in front of the Marble Slab Ice Cream Store, so there was plenty of foot traffic. I finished the piece around 3pm on Sunday.
