The holiday season is here and we at Harvest Gold kicked it off with our annual Holiday Open House! There were cookies, snacks, and drinks, but we also had the pleasure of hosting a painting demonstration by local artist Diane Scott. At the open house, Diane brought both a photo and a study of the scene she was working on. She typically begins a piece plein air before moving inside to complete it. This is the point in the process that we were lucky enough to witness.
While she worked, Diane explained her methods and provided insight into her process, answering any questions guests asked. Over the course of the afternoon, viewers watched a painting take form in front of their eyes.
As Diane was busy painting, guests enjoyed some of Bill's delicious hors d'oeuvres and cookies. Many people were present; some guests had never been into the gallery and some were frequent visitors. A couple artists featured in the gallery even stopped by!
A good time was had by all and we thank everyone who joined us for our holiday open house. Happy Holidays!
