pARTicipate in the ARTS

This past Friday night I attended the first ever - pARTicipate in the ARTS at the Somerset Art Association in Bedminster, NJ.  There were artists sharing their talents and some great music to enjoy!  The highlight of the night for me was my 15 minute portrait, painted by David Ohlerking.  Yes!  It's true, he has masonite boards ready to go and he paints your portrait, in oil paint, while you stand there in front of him (in 15 minutes).  I had never seen such a thing ~ AMAZING!  I was fortunate to arrive early so I hardly had to wait ~ but you can imagine by the end of the night there was a line.  Now, this in NOT something new for Mr. Ohlerking, apparently you can find him in a variety of places round NJ...Chester being one place and I just read that he will be in New Hope, PA next weekend!  Check out his website HERE and if you are in the area, stop by to see him work or maybe have our portrait painted! Enjoy!
