Today was the annual Opus Framing paint-out event in Victoria that Gerda and I like to take part in, as well as another approximately 130 participants who had the same idea. We each made a sketch or painting on location on Fisgard Street in the sunshine using the prescribed size of 8″ x 10″, which is a bit tight; just enough space for a small brush to move around.
The format was changed from previous years in that the competitive aspect was removed. Instead the organizers pulled names out of a hat to distribute many opus gift-certificates and art materials at the conclusion of this happening.
We really enjoyed the day; thanks to Opus Framing, their sponsors and the friendly staff who so skillfully directed this event.
