I complete 1-2 live painting demos annually. For 2 hours, I complete a painting from start to finish in front of a live audience and streamed live online in real time. The recording is then compressed into a short time lapse video like the ones below. In 2011, my live demo was broadcast on FOX's Good Day Philadelphia (link below). These are donation events with the painting auctioned as a fundraiser. If you are interested in hosting one of my live painting demos, email me.

On Friday, April 1, I conducted a live painting demonstration in Grey Towers Castle at Arcadia University. The event was open to the public and streamed live in real time at http://arcadia.edu/livepaint. Each spring, my live painting demonstrations are streamed live online in real time, receiving more than 3,000 views.

The finished painting is at auction (link above), with proceeds from the sale donated to the Jami Rodriguez Memorial Scholarship at Arcadia. I began conducting live painting demonstrations in 2011 to honor the memory of my friend, Jami Rodriguez, a 2000 graduate of Arcadia. Jami and I became friends when we were both art students and members of Arcadia’s Student Alumni Association.

I remember Jami as an amazing artist and a wonderful friend, and I want to raise awareness about the Jami Rodriguez Memorial Scholarship to honor Jami and her legacy of community service, artistic creativity, and love for Beaver College. I believe it's important for alums and the larger Arcadia community to remember Jami's legacy -- as well as each and every unique Arcadia/Beaver alumni story.
