This year on Dec. 5th, I was honored to host my first annual Holiday Patron Party!
People who have supported or collected my work were invited to my family's home for a festive, intimate celebration of the holiday season. Hosting this special event was a way I felt I could say thank-you to these people who have not only made it possible for me to earn a living as an artist, but have shown true kindness and friendship.
These people mean so much to me, and I continue to learn from amd be encouraged by them. Most of them are talented artists themselves!
From 6-8pm, we enjoyed conversation and refreshments, discussing art, life, and relationships. My talented brother, Noah, generously played the piano the whole time, providing a lovely ambiance. Being surrounded by family and friends was a true delight.
Unfortunately, not everyone was able to come, but I thought of them that night and felt deep gratitude.
As a fun way to end of evening, everyone drew a number to win an 8x10" gouache landscape I recently painted. The painting went to Erin de la Rosa!
It was such a special night, full of meaningful moments and people. I already can't wait for next year's party!
It was the perfect way to share the holidays with these remarkable individuals. It couldn't have gone so smoothly or looked so beautiful without all the help from my family! The decorations, treats, and ambiance were contributions lovingly given and gratefully received.
Merry Christmas, and have a Happy New Year!
