To commemorate one of my favorite holidays, I did a demonstration aboard Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas! This ship is beyond amazing!! My pictures do not do it justice, but as you can see in the photo I am surrounded by lush greenery. That is because in the middle of the Oasis is Central Park...designed to look like, well, Central Park! There are beautiful trees, and lovely sitting areas. You can go to the wonderful restaurants that line the perimeter of the park or just pick up a melt-in-your-mouth roast beef sandwich and continue on to the ship's famous Aqua Show or the ice skating rink, art gallery, whatever your pleasure.
So for the Valentine's Day celebration I chose to work on an original acrylic on paper "Love" piece from my Tattoo series. I also was excited to showcase some new mixed media originals like the James Dean piece (pictured) and the original "Lyrical Hearts" from the Love, Alli series. These are oil pastel hearts drawn over some of the most romantic love song lyrics like "Unforgettable" and "At Last." I enjoyed being in a beautiful setting and meeting all the passengers eager to enjoy their cruise! Hope everyone had a great day!
