Sandra paints Alla Prima

January has been a little too chilly for Sandra to get out side so she opted to paint in the cosmetics department at Hamilton Place Mall's Belk Department Store at their Senior Expo. "I received a favorable response from the manager and employees". It was announced over the intercom. The announcement was that Artist Sandra Babb is demostrating her craft.
Over all it was a pleasant experience lasting from 10 am til 1 pm. I may have painted for an hour total time. The Events Coordinator has invited us back and I'm game to try it again. Note that I put the sign in the painting---"At Your Service." This little study sold and I slipped it into a Belk's plastic bag with tissue paper from the Chanel Department. Fun to go home with the new owner. It is a pastel and I hope she made it to the frameshop intact.

Hi Sandra
Jacq here, from IPAP.

What a tremendous idea with the department store in the Mall.
This could open all sorts of possibilities for merchants looking to draw more customers after the holiday sales are done.
Thanks for sharing this with everyone.
