Another lost Blog

Our Inspiration "Lil Z"
Day 26 (10/6/12)
This summer our friends Grant and Sally Van Driest invited us over to their house for the first ever “Done in a Day” celebration. We have collaborated with the Van Driest for many years but it had always been Paper making celebrations at our house so they decided to develop their own celebration of creation. The basic idea is to have everything you need to make art ready before hand such as boards, paint in various types of applicators, and tools for manipulating the paint. Since the first event Eileen and I have started accumulating quite a menagerie of paint and applicators. The applicators are as important as the paint itself. These include everything from atomizers, squeeze bottles and various brushes and devises used to put the paint on the boards. Once the application of paint starts nothing is off limits. Under the tutelage of our mentor “Lil Z” we threw caution to the wind and some paintings as well. When finally the sun started going down we had quite the collection of art work. We pondered the idea of setting up some shows were everything we displayed would have been made in one day, “Done in a Day” shows.
