some fantastic artwork

Lansdale Bike Night

Amy Rims painting Motorcycles

 

Bike night was postponed due to rain on Saturday. I had it planned out that my Art Walkers would go sell some artwork to promote the show Tell Tale Art Show I’m putting together and I had arranged for another artist to go set up a table and do a live painting to promote community arts. I’ve been scared of motorcycles and bikers for many years since I grew up with some violent bikers. When the event was rescheduled and the other artist could not make it, I was encouraged by many to face my fear and go do what I love to do, paint. I had a minor anxiety attack before leaving the house but pulled myself together, stretched a canvas, packed up some artwork, got the family together and went out to the event. I’m so glad I did. I feel like I made one of the best live paintings I ever have.  I think I say that every time I do a new live painting.

I had a chance to talk to a good amount of people, including bikers and even a few bikers from my past and everyone was kind and very supportive of my artistic endeavors. I got asked a few times “Where is your museum (store front, gallery etc.)?” That is an ambitious goal to work towards but I’m up to the challenge. Perhaps one day I will have a building dedicated to the arts.

The Lucky Winner

I’ve learned about the difficulties of holding raffles and the difficulties of transporting artwork on motorcycles. These are things they don’t teach you in art school or anywhere else. I appreciate everyone’s patience with me as I figure these things out. There is a bike night in Quakertown coming up, I may have to check that one out.
