An Artfull Saturday!

This last Saturday Jason was invited to participate in an event at the Nox Contemporary Gallery called "Draw".

For the exhibition, all participants were given the same time frame (8 hours) and the same size paper on which to work. The catch: Each artist will be limited to using only a over sized No. 2 pencil and one other drawing medium of the artist's choice, the latter of which will be attached to a dowel the length of his or her body height.

Jason brought his pen and ink supplies and went to town! I was there for the day as well cheering him on while I worked on my latest cross stitch. It was a really long day, but fun to see what the other artists did. The opening for the show is this Friday, I hope lots of people come to it!

Jason does some Amazing pen and ink drawings, many people liked this tree that he did. He spent the majority of his time on it and didn't have time to finish much else. I think it looks fantastic!

By the time he was done his back was killing him, but I think he had fun.

I think that is so cool. I was talking about this to my art class yesterday. More bragging that my brother in law gets invited to do this kind of thing because he is so his art work is amazing.

That would be fun to be a part of! Did he use the stem unit on his back afterwards?
