'Doug's Kettle Korn' oil on canvas, 11x14 © Marc R. Hanson'10
I took part in the Wild Wings Fall Festival and Original Show in Lake City, MN this past Saturday and Sunday. I was asked to do a painting demonstration along with other demonstrations being done to help show the public the 'art' in action.
It was a beautiful fall day with the sun shining brightly, lighting up the surroundings. Doug Hase from Alexandria, MN runs a business who was a vendor at the Fall Festival, 'Doug's Kettle Korn', an he cooks up some mean kettle corn. I should mention too that Doug is a tall dude... guessing at least 6'4'? So his head was always up in the canopy of his tent.
The crowd watching had lot's of questions and kept me on my toes while trying to concentrate on pulling off a successful painting. I'm happy with it from many aspects, color, composition and being able to get it down all the while the models were moving and the light was changing. A great day.
