Holiday Painting Exchange

Last weekend Charley and I hosted the first annual Holiday Painting Exchange of Secret Society of Utah Artists (name pending). The group was organized by Charley as a way to share work with each other. Here’s how it works. Every year, each of the 8 artists involved will draw the name of one of the other artist and paint them a painting. The painting should reference the artist it’s being painted for in some way – their work, their personality, or whatever. Then artists and spouses get together to exchange the painting and for some merriment. After 8 years each artist will have a complete collection of each other work.

The inaugural year was a great success. I prepared a wonderful meal of ham and other treats…and much merriment was had! It was a great thrill to have a house full of amazing art and artist.
