Join me for a 12-hour Paint-a-Thon to celebrate the end of summer!

12-hr End of Summer Paint-a-ThonIn the past, I have done Paint-a-thons and they have been a lot of fun. So,let’s do one to celebrate the end of summer!

Here is how it will work:

On Thursday, September 15, 2022, I will paint non-stop in my downtown Canton studio for 12 hours and create as many paintings as I can. I will paint from noon to midnight, posting in-process photos and making Facebook Live broadcasts throughout the day. Once the paintings are completed, they will be posted for auction on my website.

1. I will paint as many paintings as I can between 12 noon to 12 midnight (EST) on Thursday, September 15, 2022.

2. All of the paintings will be posted for auction here on my website on Friday, September 16, 2022. Bidding will conclude Sunday, September 18, 2022 at 10 pm EST.

3. I will be posting photos of the works in progress throughout the Paint-a-thon to Instagram and to Facebook. Follow the hashtag #bztatptg for the latest.

4. Each painting will be approximately 10″ X 14″ on wood. There will be a minimum bid on each painting. There will also be a $25 USA and $45 international shipping fee for each painting.

My paint-a-thons are a great way to find some affordable bargains on artwork!

I hope you will join me for this special event. I promise to have some new and fresh images that have not been seen before.

Have suggestions for what you’d like me to paint? Leave them in the comments!

Over the years, I have occupied a number of studio spaces in the Canton Arts District. I have been working out of my home of late, though, and I have been yearning to have a more public space to work and share my art. The perfect opportunity opened up for me, and I am again returning to the Canton Arts District! I welcome you to come an visit me in my new art studio/gallery at Avenue Arts Theatre and Marketplace in downtown Canton.

I am having a Grand Opening during Canton’s First Friday this week. I hope that you can stop by and visit and maybe add to your art collection. This month’s First Friday is the 10th Anniversary for the event, so there will be lots of fun activities through the district. The first 50 visitors will get a free coloring page from “Artist BZTAT’s Color Me Cats” coloring book. I will have new artwork and some special offers to help you add to your art collection.
