RNC 2008

Posted in Art Show, Portraits, Santa Claus, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on August 31, 2008 by Nanci Fulmek

I found my self a small little space downtown St. Paul for the RNC.  We have about 6 artists who all rented out the space where the old Skyway Library used to be.  I have been down there all week and I will be there until next Friday.  So far St.Paul has been a pretty dead.  Next week we will see if this was worth it.

If you are downtown St Paul, stop by & visit!  I will be painting my NEW Santa painting on site, also will be working on Klondike Kate 07 LIVE on Monday, Sept 1st.  I am in the Allicance Bank Building. In the Skyway, accross from the food court (on the town square side). I hope to see you there!

I have met some pretty cool people, one lady who shares my space in the skyway, her husband is in charge of the ballon drop at the Excel Center.  He was showing us videos of past events and was really cool too see, I found this video talking about setting it up.  Check it out.

Here is the charcoal study for the painting of State of Dee Heart (aka Richie)

As I have not painted many of the western horses, I meet with Richie’s owner Missy to find the perfect pose. We went thru LOTS of photos, and looked at old Appaloosa magazines. Then after I also took many photos we laid them out to put together the pose.

This “pose” is actully from his right side. We wanted to paint his “left side” with the heart spot on his hind quarters. soooo… I drew the drawing flip flopped, and they had to place all the spots in the correct place….fewww…. this was tough! So I have not drawn all the spots at this point, but I got the main ones down to transfer for the painting.
