More shots. One shows the dance floor which was important because I was supposed to paint the first dance.

Well, look at you, your own station! Looks nice.
And that looks like a really nice place for a wedding. All modern and clean. Pretty cool.

Wow, Renata, that's quite impressive. Will you be in a position to show us the painting when it's finished? Is it nerve-wracking to paint live with all the guests milling around? Never heard of such a thing, so please tell more. As Levina says, a beautiful setting.

Thank you, Levina. I always bring my little station which includes a table with black cover, easel, lamp, tablet, floor covering etc. The museum people brought some cardboard to cover the floor and wall because they didn't belive me that oils don't drip. They didn't accept my own black floor covering.
It was a beautiful place, indeed but extremely acoustic and noisy; too many hard surfaces.

10 years ago when I started the concept I was perhaps a little nervous but not any more. The concept of live event painting is becoming more popular here and I am the only artist in the DFW (Dallas-Fort Worth) area who does it. It's fun and lucrative.
Here is the finished painting. Oil on Belgian linen 24x36" (60x90cm) painted exactly to the couple's specifications. Very loosely painted. The couple loves it.

Wow, Renata, that's fantastic. How long does it take you to paint it? Sorry for the questions but I haven't quite got my head round it yet!

Annie, thank you for your kind words.
It takes me 3-4 hours to do most of the work on site and by that time the paint is so wet that I can't do anything else. The colors would become muddy if i did. I take it it home and 2-3 days later I add some final touches and that's it.
I get food and wine, people come over to talk...it's just fun.

That is awesome Renata. I love the concept and can see how it would add to an event. The couple should be happy as that is a wonderful and unique piece to add to their memory of the day.

Wow - the couple should be thrilled. It is amazing, Renata, that you capture a fleeting moment using such a slow medium.

thank you for sharing.

Thank you Lupo. Don't know about being an inspiration but I just have no other choice.

US Nifty again having made 2 trips to Fort Worth. One for the live wedding painting and a separate one with my family from overseas, just to unwind and show them this part of the world.
When I went to Fort Worth for the wedding, I only visited the museum of modern art...just another job.
Then my husband's family from Australia flew over and I had to be their tour guide. Upon a consultation with them, it was decided that we should go to Fort Worth to see some real wild West stuff. I went ahead being the photographer, tour guide, cook, soul mender and all.
We started at the heart of Fort Worth...the Sundance Square (external link). The images are in no particular order and I am still in no position of writing extensive descriptions and stories about what we saw. My apologies.
Just some high-rise buildings on our way to the square
