Your Site For Artists Who Paint Outdoors

Hi Folks 
many thanks to all who participated in this years Festival. I hope you had fun and were happy with your work. Yet again the exhibition was a revelation of the latent talent and energy that is out there.
Many of you offered suggestions to make the festival more attractive and organizational hints to help make it more efficient. Each one was better that the other. Perhaps you would take some time to post them here, i'm afraid i may have forgotten some of the excellent suggestions and we would like to do our best for you all
Thanks, looking forward to hearing from you

Personally, I am always up for a challenge.  That's the fun of painting for me... getting OUT of a comfort zone. (Not that I've ever found a comfort zone).


Something else that artists might do is offer a "blank canvas" for sale. Meaning... people who want their businesses or homes painted could pre-purchase (basically like a commission) a blank canvas from an artist. The artist is guaranteed a sale that way, and the potential patron could browse through a notebook of artists' styles and general price range in order to choose.  Of course, artists would have a choice of participating in this or not.


I would have loved to have attended some of the mini-workshops, but just felt like I really couldn't miss the opportunity to paint. Maybe next year I can schedule longer time there so I get to do it all!



I think the idea of an auction is a good one.  It is a lot of work however.  I was a member of a local art co-op for quite a few years, at which we had some auctions to raise money for the gallery.  If AITO did chose a local charity, they would vary it each year.  I think many people are more inspired to pay for something if some of the money is going to a charity they believe in.
