Live Painting at the Temps Partiel

Last friday, I had the chance to share the stage with my friend and incredibly talented artist Marie-Pier Lapointe at the Temps Partiel, painting a large, 30" x 60" canvas in front of the bar patrons, in under 3 hours.

That night at the bar was actually a fundraiser for Le Mur Insolite, the darkest, friendliest, most bizarre gallery in the province of Quebec. While we tried to give something to watch with our painting, DJ Kronos was spinning great industrial music, tickets to win two gorgeous pendants by local artist Rottenz were sold and the gallery kept about 15% of all sales of alcohol, courtesy of the bar.

While the evening started with the bar almost empty with the worst thunderstorm I've seen in years raging outside, it ended up being a success, bringing about 400$ to the gallery, and an invitation from the Temps Partiel to do that again every three months.

The finished canvas is now on sale at the Mur Insolite.
