This one is called a money drop tree. The artist makes quite a few of these and they all turn out differently as she encourages passersby to help with adding the leaves to it. The leaves are all done in silver and copper tones (like money). She often gives them away as fundraisers for charity. Neat concept I thought.
It wasn't his most favourite piece (he really liked the money tree and another painting I was discouraged from taking a picture of).
I thought it rather neat myself...something about the curving pattern worked for me.
We did the artist who could paint a canvas quickly. He did it with a background of quick blue paint strokes and then added colour over top. It was rather fascinating to watch him...as the colour kinda blended together but not really, we saw a boat house take shape right in front of our eyes. I was too interested and forgot to take pictures.
I spent a lot of time talking with a lady who makes jewelry, and plan to email her about setting up a class for our homeschool group to learn how to work with the material she uses. It's like a very versatile clay and needs hardening in the oven, but it's not really a clay it's a plastic based compound. Interesting how she is able to work with it, the lad saw the possibilities of it very quickly.
