Making Plans to Create an “One Week Painting”

Ok… This is a blog from another site of mine, but the amount of images is a A LOT to copy over… well… the gallery portion is. I took a moment to stop at the Art*Bar in Milwaukee to check out what the artist did on Sunday evening to work OVER my painting… it was AWESOME! There is still KORB painting left. Thank you!

After September 11, 2001 occurred, and the world was still reeling from the shock, “Don Krause, then 42, took the event as a personal wake-up call and sought out a place to cultivate his Riverwest dream, to create a unique tavern. “I never told anyone what I was working on and I didn’t know when it was going to open,” says Krause. “I had never done anything like it before.”…

The Art Bar 2009-2010 WINNER

The winner of one of 10 BEST PAINTINGS from 2009-10
19 March 2010, artists from all over Wisconsin (and maybe some from other parts of the country – heck World) converged upon Don Krause’s ART BAR at 722 East Burleigh Street in Milwaukee, WI to celebrate yet another successful year of paintings. 52 paintings were painted and then photographed so the celebration could have a wall of paintings and a slide show to visually take us through the year, one painting at a time. From gluttony to sea monkeys, flying eggs to the Art Bar itself (mine) the paintings were the stringest Mr. Krause has seen since the whole event started. For the second time in 5 years, Abby and I took a place of honor upon the wall of the Art Bar as one of Don’s favorite paintings for the year. I have already scheduled myself for July 25th so make sure you save that date… I sure hope I have saved tat date. Enjoy the pictures!
