i was invited again this year to be a working artist at tribeca ball, the academy's annual gala fundraiser. this is the little painting i did, which i just sold to one of the guests! below are some shots of me setting up and starting to paint. it was fun, but the downside is i was too busy painting the whole time to see such fabulous guests as justin timberlake and bill clinton. apparently jt was even standing behind me for a few minutes while i was painting. and no one told me!!!
