Baltimore Bride 2016 Aisle Style Wedding Event at the Four Seasons Hotel, Thursday March 24, 2016

As a preferred Vendor of the Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore I was invited to participate in this.  I'll have a table at the Four Seasons Hotel March 24, 2015, and would love to meet future brides and show them samples of my work, and explain the process of hiring a live event painter.  

Thank you to Baltimore Bride Magazine for inviting me to participate and for making the process easy, and especially thank you to Jacqueline Hamilton who designed my ad.  She has an amazing eye, and really created a striking ad.  I highly recommend Ms. Hamilton for this, she is herself an artist, and is also highly trained in graphic design.

My ad is in the 2016 Baltimore Bride issue on page 95.  I'm also mentioned on page 126 under Live Event Painters, along with my favorite live event painter Katherine Gressel.

Little Sketch for First Dance to add to Live Painting, by Patricia Bennett

Process: We were unsure which room to set the painting in, as the view from the Cobalt room is spectacular but the Grand Ballroom was to be the focus of Victoria's Floral Creations.  It was decided that I would paint the view from the Cobalt room and incorporate it into the Grand Ballroom, then return to the Cobalt Room after dinner to paint the dancing.  I painted the view (which will be sunset after I add some rose tints to it and the Domino's Sugar highlighted sign) until 3pm in the Cobalt Room, then returned to the Grand Ballroom until 10:30pm, then returned to the Cobalt room until 1am.

Kate Taylor was event coordinator, Victoria Clausen and her team created the amazing florals, the band was from Atlanta.
