The Green Portal - Festival Painting

The Green Portal - Festival Painting

Size: 80"h x 36"w

3 Hour Live Painting event at the Hackensack “Main Music Art & Brew Fair”; Acrylic on Vintage Door

"The door came out great. Looks like you had fun." -Lisa G., New York NY

"The Green Portal" was such a fun project. I loved painting under a huge spotlight and interacting with the public, especially the children who ‘helped’ me paint the door. The live retro-disco music made sure that I never flagged for energy and I was able to finish painting the door with 20 minutes to spare! And I was really happy that the finished door looked just like my smaller preparatory study!

The Northern New Jersey Community Foundation issued an RFP (request for proposals) to participate in a 3 hour live painting event at the “Main Music Art & Brew Fair” that took place on October 5, 2019 in Atlantic Park, Hackensack NJ. My accepted proposal for "The Green Portal" featured a 20”H x 10”W Oil on Canvas preparatory study inspired by a local bike path that is an oasis of nature in congested Northern NJ.

"Before the door was a door, it was a tree - my goal is to bring the door literally back to its roots by creating an energetic woodsy landscape rendered in a contemporary painterly style using acrylics. The overall effect is a trompe l'oeil as if you could literally walk through the door into the woods. As a former dancer, I love painting to live music and was able to match the rhythm of my brushstrokes, drips and splatters to the disco beat! I also kept the vintage texture of the door surface to add texture to the finished work. "The Green Portal" is an ode to nature inspired by our local parks and greenways.”
